Brokerage house analyst sees continued dominance of the Apple iPad
posted by Alan F. / Aug 08, 2011, 1:15 PM
As far as 2015 is concerned, the year in which Informa Telecoms & Media expects the two tablets to have the same share of the market, Needham says that the Apple iPad will control a whopping 72.5% of the tablet industry with an average selling price of $487. For this year, Wolf sees Apple accounting for 85% of all tablets shipped, with an average selling price of $599. Check out the chart below to see Wolf's computations.
While we can't tell you which of the two different analytic views will be right, we can say with certainty that either Android tablets will catch up with and finally overtake the Apple iPad in the number of units being shipped per year, or else Apple's iconic tablet will remain the leading device in the industry. Either way, Apple is projected to score net profits as high as $7.5 billion from the iPad by 2020, from $2.6 billion this year.

Everyone is free to express their opinion and doesn't matter what brand you prefer.

This is why projections mean nothing. One says 3 years, one says 10 years.. lol. Of course, if previous information is correct, this article is already wrong, since Andriod tablets accounted for 30% of sales already this year, and they really just launched this year.

If HP continues to price their tablets at $700, and Moto prices the Xoom and its follow-ons at a similar insane level, and the rest of the non-iOS tablets continue to face production constraints, Apple will continue to dominate the tablet space.

What's that fallacy where you assume the future looks like the present, only later? Yeah, that. One word to refute Needham and his heavy position in Apple stock: Amazon. Out of curiosity, does anyone have Needham's predictions on iPhone market dominance from two years ago? That would be instructive, would it not?

Have to admit that the iPad really is innovativem, and deliver an experience that a mass market enjoys and appreciates. Just like my iPad, watching movies,it's much portable! though lack flash support, but with some tools like ifunia can easily solve the problem; check emails, surfing, reading, playing games, and seems can developing my nephew's intelligence! I totally believe it can be the winner for the next Decade!
