The latest International Data Corporation (IDC) report is in, and the result puts Apple’s iPad on top of the heap once again with a 61.5% market share.
The number is actually down compared to last quarter’s figure at 63.3%. Competitors have been aggressively coming out with new tablets constantly, which may be one of the reasons for the slight decline as there are more choices now out there.
Still, the large market share is impressive, with Android-equipped tablets coming in second at 32.4%, also a slight decline compared to its 33.2% showing in the previous quarter.
HP’s TouchPad, which is equipped with WebOS, took third place with 5%, with its cheap offers on the tablets driving up sales in the past few months.
Collectively, the tablet wars are certainly upon us, with growth across all platforms going up 264% compared to last year’s figures.
