Over the last two decades, it sometimes felt as if every time we mastered one device, a newer one would pop up on the market. Tablets have burst onto the digital scene in a big way in the last few years, but unlike other technologies that quickly faded into memory, the way we use tablet and smartphone technology continues to grow and evolve. More and more people are converting to tablets, and they’re here to stay. 

In 2012, 70 percent of device sales were for smartphones or tablets; sales peaked well over the 800 million mark. But, get ready. Gartner predicts 2013 sales will reach 1.2 billion devices purchased worldwide. In 2013, tablet purchases will continue to boom and their use in the sales process will redefine the way we do business, from initial data capture to lead management, paperwork and fund transfers. This will lead to big decisions about how companies manage these technologies, from which devices to support to cloud computing and the ultimate issue of security.
