App publisher Animoca ran an interesting test on nearly a million Android tablets that use its software across the globe and came up with some interesting data. And the most popular Android tablet turned out to be the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 with an 11.8% share of the market. Second came the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and only then were the Amazon Kindle Fire and Fire HD tablets. The Google Nexus 7 took the sixth place. The Animoca test tracked users accessing Google Play and playing one of their games.
Interestingly, though, another research firm, Localytics, ran the same test on an even larger base of tablets in March. The numbers came in similar but not identical. The Galaxy Tab 2 got the leada but it was a much narrower race with the Amazon Kindle Fire tablets that came in second. The Nexus 7 ranked fourth here.
What’s noteworthy in both surveys is how widespread are the Samsung tablets. We guess volume and scale are important factors after all.
