I was reading an article about tablets , I came across this sentence ( highlighted one) which I am not sure I could understand it ..Because for me its meaning contradicts the rest of the article..What I understood is that " tablets beat other form of computers in terms of sales or functionality but tablets are seen the demise of e-readeas" .So if we use tables to read e-books , doesn't the word " demise" contradic the rest of the sentence?Can you explain what it means .In this context the word suggest means "show , indicate "..?
"More and more people are choosing tablet computers as their weapon of choice for e-mail, surfing the net, watching videos, keeping up with social networking, playing games and whatever else they do, both for fun and for work. Tablets will outsell both desktops and laptops combined in 2014 and, as you can see from the list of activities (which is incomplete), their versatility is definitely one of the major appeals of these devices.
In addition to outgunning other types of computers, tablets are often suggested to herald the demise of dedicated e-readers. Some potential buyers, ask “which is the best tablet for reading books on?”."
