Since 2005, InfoTrends has advocated for connected cameras. In the early days of smartphones, it was their built-in connectivity and the instant sharing that it enabled that helped to nibble away at low-end digital camera sales. Despite obstacles like mediocre image quality and expensive data plans, a large number of consumers chose the convenience of mobile photography over the superior image quality of even the simplest standalone cameras.

We found that about 31% of them were using a tablet — more than double the percentage from a similar survey just ten months earlier. We expect the growth of tablets to continue for quite some time, fueled in part by the flood of lower-cost devices recently announced (and rumored to be announced) before the holiday season.
