A recent study conducted by international chip maker Intel found that an additional 216 million users worldwide would seek to purchase educational computer tablets throughout 2013.
Ahmed al-Zaghbi, director of marketing development for Intel in Egypt, stated that sales for computer tablets have recently experienced growth rates of nearly 20%, with recent surveys conducted by the company estimating that at least 133 million users planned to purchase tablets in 2013, but that number could be expected to increase to 216 million.
