Apple walked over HP last quarter to become the largest mobile computer maker in the world
Thanks to booming iPad sales, Apple overtook traditional PC industry juggernaut HP to become the largest manufacturer of mobile computers with 10.2 million sold, 17.2% of the market, in Q4 of 2010.
The second HP sold 9.3 million mobile PCs, 15.6% of the market, then we have Acer with 8.4 million, then Dell and Toshiba. With more than 50 new tablets to appear this year, including HP's own TouchPad, it might be hard for Apple to maintain the lead, but the iPad 2 is just around the corner, and we are hearing about a third iPad due for September - October introduction to keep the pace going.
