After years of meteoric growth, the tablet market may finally be reaching a plateau. According to a research firm called IDC, tablets had a strong holiday sales quarter to close out 2013. However, the firm also thinks that the marketplace may be getting a bit saturated, not just because more companies are putting out more tablets than ever before, but also because most users interested in purchasing a tablet have already done so at this point.
