Apple iPad continues to dominate in the tablet market
66% rise in the number of tablets shipped.
While there is a huge drop off from Apple's 17 million tablets shipped in the second quarter to runner-up Samsung's 2 million, it represents opportunity for one of the other manufacturer's to cut that gap. Will Amazon be able to make a move with the sequel to the Amazon Kindle Fire, or will it be ASUS, manufacturer of the red hot Google Nexus 7.

Hate all you want but that's a huge gap and it'll probably grow with apple possibly releasing a iPad mini!

That's fine, they're ignorant! Android lovers and thumbing down is hilarious. All it means is that i'm right. Unlike y'all, I carry an ios device and android and have no loyalty to either.

Tre-Nitty, I am with you. I have an iPad 1 and Galaxy Note. Its the best of both worlds. iOS is good on the iPad but restricted to use on a phone.

So people prefer touch screen digital photoframes with games over real tablets, how is it Google's fault people are dumb?

Could be, but the mini might take sales away from the full sized iPad. Have to wait and see.

Indeed, I can see even good results from Samsung and Asus about the last year growth

It was. It just a matter of time before we see Android on the top of that list. It's a numbers game. Look and the iPhone vs Android sales. It's not even fair. One phone vs an OS, come on. In time and not much longer Android will be on top the tablet market share. It's a numers game. You don't think so? Ok bet you were on of those people that thought Apple would dominate the market share of smartphones. Well that wasn't the case. Love or hate Apple, it has nothing to do with it. Again it is a numbers game.

Interesting!! Maybe that is why they are suddenly(well not suddenly) lumping it in with the pc. Getting close to a monopoly market share like Windows. That would be interesting indeed.
