Tablet sales take it on the chin during the first quarter of 2014
Among the big names that shipped fewer tablets in the 2014 quarter are Apple, Google and Amazon. Apple shipped 16.1% fewer iPads in the period, while Google's decline was 44.6%. Amazon shipped 52.8% fewer tablets year-over-year. Among the big winners, Lenovo saw its tablet shipments increase over 14 times. Asus had a 24.9% improvement in tablet shipments for the three month period.
Besides having potential sales moved to the third quarter of 2013, some analysts blame the decline in tablet sales on the bigger screened smartphones that are now available. For example, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra features a 6.44 inch screen which is close to the 7 inch tablets offered by some manufacturers.
