Detachable 2 in 1 products, which instead are experiencing a period of prosperity, partially halt the collapse. Thanks to the entry into the market of more and more efficient, beautiful and versatile models, 2015 has seen a significant increase in the popularity of these gadgets. Their impact on the total results of the tablet category was not enough to save the entire sector, but the manufacturers seem to have already what to aim for this year.
