Apple's tablet market share drops to 61.5 per cent

With a fleet of Android tablets hitting the scene in recent months Apple has seen its market share drop as it continues to remain the big dog

 

Apple has continued its unparalleled dominance of the tablet market with a new study revealing the company’s range of iPad devices control a 61.5 per cent share of the tablet scene.

Whilst the latest Q3 figures, compiled by research analysts Worldwide Trackers, showed a decreased market share for Apple, down from 68.3 per cent earlier in the year, Apple’s market dominance sees the iPhone manufacturer control 10 times the share of its closest rival.

“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,” Jennifer Song of Worldwide Trackers said.

“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.”

Landing with the ARM A5 dual-core processor the Apple iPad 2 maintained the 9.7-inch form factor and display as its predecessor whilst adopting a new, slimmer chassis. Front and rear mounted cameras were also included for the second-gen iPad bringing the device inline with the capabilities of its Android rivals.
