The tablet PC market is starting to turn into a huge, fast-paced industry as more people are becoming accustomed to using these devices in a variety of ways, from multimedia to Internet browsing. Such is the growth of the tablet market that leading research firm Forrester said that by 2016, there will be 760 million tablets worldwide.
In the face of growing demand, Arnova is introducing several new models in its tablet line, aimed at the basic entry-level user to the power business user. Coming from the same pedigree that made the Arnova G2 series a success, the new Arnova G3 Android tablets were created to ensure optimum performance.
