Why Tablet Shipments Grew by More than 66 Percent

According to preliminary data from International Data Corporation (IDC), a better than anticipated second quarter for the media tablet market will offer one of the few upside opportunities for traditional PC manufacturers in an otherwise uninspiring global marketplace.

Total worldwide media tablet shipments for the second quarter of 2012 2Q12 are estimated at 25 million units — that’s up from 18.7 in the first quarter of 2012.

That growth represents a quarter-over-quarter increase of 33.6 percent and a robust year-over-year growth rate of 66.2 percent, up from 15 million units in the second quarter of 2011.
