With a hefty 106.1 million tablets previously tipped to be shipped globally during 2012, IDC’s new figures have suggested this figure is set to grow with Apple to account for 62.5 per cent of the staggering 107.4 million tablets now expected to be shifted this year, up from 58.2 per cent in the past 12 months.
