The Tablet PC market is nearing its 3-year anniversary with increased shipments, but mixed success overall, research firm In-Stat reported.

Referring to PCs that run Microsoft's Windows XP Tablet PC Edition operating system, Tablet PC shipments have yet to reach the lofty heights that some backers predicted upon launch.

The next few years will show some significant growth, however, with the worldwide market rising from U.S. $1.2 billion in 2004 to $5.4 billion in 2009, according to In-Stat.

"Broad horizontal corporate markets should start to make an impact on the market in 2005, as average selling prices fall well below $2,000," said Brian O'Rourke, In-Stat analyst. "A combination of greater Tablet PC software availability and larger form factors that directly address the corporate market should help Tablet PC sales."

A recent report by In-Stat found the following:

  • Vertical markets, such as health care, real estate, insurance, and sales force automation, continued to be a driving factor in 2004 Tablet PC shipments.
  • Acer, Fujitsu, HP, Motion Computing, and Toshiba were among the leaders in 2004 Tablet PC shipments.
  • Availability of an integrated next-generation Tablet PC operating system in Microsoft's Longhorn operating system would have a significant impact on Tablet PC sales.
  • Microsoft's recently announced Ultra Mobile 2007 portable PC form factor could have a significant impact of future Tablet PC shipments.
