Digitimes Research: 7-inch tablet prices to continue dropping
Jim Hsiao, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Monday 23 June 2014]

In the US tablet market, the lowest price point for a 7-inch brand tablet dropped to US$79 in June, according to Digitimes Research. With 7-inch tablet specifications gradually converging and prices declining, Samsung Electronics' 7-inch tablets, which are priced at a relatively higher level, are expected to face more and more pressure from price competition.

Another noticeable trend in the tablet market is that prices of 8-inch tablets are showing signs of decline as Samsung, Lenovo, Asustek Computer and Acer have recently released 8-inch devices, heating up competition in the market.

As for the 10-inch tablet market, Acer released the Switch 10 detachable Windows-based tablet to match Asustek's T100. However, the Switch 10's weak price-performance ratio is expected to increase the difficulty for Acer to catch up on its competitors' detachable tablet shipments, Digitimes Research estimated.
