iPad is really the best tablet out there, with the highest shares in the global tablet market. Although, a number of manufacturers came up with their own tablets, still none of them has been able to compete with the legendary iPad.
A recent report has confirmed that iPad is the best tablet around the globe, with 61.5 % global market shares. And for telling you how big is that, just take a look at the sales figure of second largest tablet manufacturer, Samsung, whose global sales are 10 times less than the iPad. 10 times smaller is surely a big difference!
Though now Apple stands in comparison to the overall Android tablet market, IDC expects Android tablet market share to increase rapidly in Q4 from just 33.2-percent in Q3 to 40.3-percent.
The main reason for this increase, as they note is the introduction of the Kindle Fire and Barnes And Noble’s Nook Tablet. They will help Android significantly to increase its market shares.
Another analyst, Morgan Stanley, predicted that iPad sales would rise to 90 million in 2012. hE apparently have high hopes for Android 4.0′s ability to offer a competitive alternative to iPad going forward. He said,
Apple’s larger portfolio of tablet-specific apps, upcoming iPad versions, and growing physical store presence in key emerging markets like Asia/Pacific will help maintain its global leadership. However, an improving Android OS experience and lower competitor pricing in an environment with worldwide economic concerns should help Android to increase its market share,” said Jennifer Song, research analyst, Worldwide Trackers.
