Tablet adoption has increased rapidly over the past one year. The device is not only used for reading eBooks, watching videos or surfing but games also command a considerable share of engagement. Tablet manufacturers today are launching specific models designed only for playing games. Additionally, console manufacturers have also started viewing Tablets as one of their competitors which is evident from the latest development where a complete console game like Skylanders Trap Team is being made available on Tablets.
