2011 Mobile PC sales: Thanks to the iPad, Apple takes the top spot
Behind Apple were HP, Dell, Acer, and Lenovo at 8.7, 6.9, 6.8, and 6.3 million units shipped, respectively. When looking at just the tablet side of things, Apple is the undisputed leader. In Q4 Apple managed to control 59.1% of the market, followed by Amazon with 16.7%, thanks to the Kindle’s strong showing.
With a variety of quad-core Android tablets launching in 2012 and the anticipated release of Windows 8, it will certainly be interesting to see if Apple can continue to maintain its stronghold on the mobile PC landscape with the iPad.
