The jury is out on 3G tablet sales

Other firms are forecasting robust growth for 3G-enabled tablets. Parks Associates sees sales of tablet computers accelerating as the number of global 3G and 4G wireless subscribers grows. Earlier in the year it predicted that 68 million of the 126 million tablets sold in 2015 will support 3G or 4G technology, more than half. Last year, 29 percent of the 16.5 million tablets contained 3G.

“We are seeing strong consumer engagement in data-intensive services and activities, such as social networking, uploading photos to the Internet and watching online video, on mobile phones,” Parks Associate analyst Jennifer Kent said.
