A couple of research reports have been issued today. First IDC is raising its projections for 2012 and 2013 tablet shipments, 2012 is up about five million and 2013 is up about seven million. The bigger news is that Windows tablets are projected to have rapid growth over the next four years, capturing 10.3% of the market by 2013! IDC
