IDC: Samsung loses its dominant position on the Indian tablet market13
IDC's report claims that in Q4 2014 Samsung has accounted for 12.9% of all sold tablets in India, while the first spot in this chart got occupied by a lesser-known local OEM manufacturer, iBall, which had 15.6% of the market. The runner-ups are Datawind (another local representative) with 9.6%, Lenovo, responsible for 9.4%, and HP, which grasped 8.7% of the market. The remainder of 43.8% goes to other manufacturers.
Of course, given the marginal mistakes in the numbers, we won't be surprised at all if Samsung once again refutes IDC's reports, re-claiming dominance in one of the largest tablet markets in the world.
Samsung is reportedly poised to overhaul its tablet portfolio in 2015 with a lot of new models. We're quite sure that a new Galaxy Tab lineup is on its way, as well as the new generation of its top-tier Tab S offerings.
