WASHINGTON (Times of India) – As phablets gain popularity, tablet shipments worldwide have dropped by 12% year-over-year to 67 million units in Q4 2014, which research firm Canalys has dubbed as the first ever decline after several quarters of sluggish demand.

Canalys’s findings are similar to a report produced by IDC that predicted a fall in tablet shipment at the end of 2014, reported TechCrunch.

Apple saw a decline in tablet shipments in the last quarter for the fourth time in a row after a brief spell of improvement in Q4 2013 following the launch of the iPad Air.
