Tablet Market Share Fuels the Android Ecosystem

Worldwide media tablet shipments totaled 27.8 million units in the third quarter of 2012 (3Q12), according to the latest updated market study by International Data Corporation (IDC).

The tablet market grew 49.5 percent year-over-year in the third quarter of 2012 and 6.7 percent over the second quarter of 2012. Once again, Google Android-based tablet shipments — led by Samsung and Amazon — surged during the quarter. In contrast, the Apple market share retreated significantly.

“After a very strong second quarter, Apple saw growth slow as both consumer and commercial (including education) shipments declined, and rumors of a forthcoming iPad mini began to heat up,” said Tom Mainelli, research director, Tablets at IDC.
