E-mail Print PDF

According to IDC the W. European tablet market sees a "slight" -1.7% Y-o-Y decline in Q1 2017, with shipments reaching 7.1 million units-- performance described as above expectations after many quarters of decline.

Driving the market is the recovery of Android-based consumer tablets, as well as the progress of the device form factor in enterprise. Also leaving a positive impact is detachable/hybrid tablets, with shipments growing by 5.8% Y-o-Y over and 16.6% Y-o-Y in the commercial segment.

In fact, the commercial segment sees 5.4% Y-o-Y tablet shipment growth thanks to Android- and iOS-based devices with keyboards. Enterprises use such device to address the specific needs of users in various sectors. However Windows-based detachables slowed down in Q1 2017 due to growing focus on convertible notebooks by major OEMs, sluggish Windows 10 adoption in large and very large corporations, and the lack of a Surface Pro refresh.

The HTC U11 looks like any regular smartphone, but it does have one surprise up its sleeve-- users can "squeeze" the 5.5-inch handset to control apps, camera and more.

HTC U11Dubbed "Edge Sense," the system consists of pressure sensors below the volume buttons on the sides. A calibration tool allows users to set a short and long squeeze, and the two actions can be configured in different ways. For instance, one can squeeze the phone to summon the camera, followed by either a short squeeze to take a selfie or a long squeeze to switch to the rear-facing camera.

HTC adds the phone ignores "false squeezes" caused by pockets and the like, while an eventual software update will allow users to configure any app to take advantage of app functionality. The company also suggests one use a squeeze to summon one of the two included voice-controlled assistants, Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.
