People using their tablets as cameras, explain this to me!

Not surprising at all

I know a person with a 5D Miii who uses his iPhone for 99% of all pictures taken.  Reasons: more portable, immediate upload and sharing, decent quality, less intrusive, reliable focus, and multi-functionality.

It's probably not a "fad" at all, either.  Camera unit sales may be lower indefinitely.

As of the use of a tablet, per se, it may have something to do with preference for the large viewing screen.  Why not take pictures with the very same device the person will use to view them?  A tablet is a heckuva lot cheaper way to display photos than prints, and it's not stuck on a desktop or wall screen.
