Apple with the highest share in tablet market

According to the data from Strategy Analytics, Apple’s ipad sold 17 million units which accounts for 68.3% of the the tablet market in 2012 Q2, jumping 67 percent from 14.9 million in 2011 Q2  . Android-based devices made 7.3 million shipments and 29.3 percent market ownership, same as previous year.

“Despite high expectations for companies like Amazon, Samsung, Acer and Asus, the Android community has yet to make a serious dent in Apple’s dominance of the tablet market,” said Strategy Analytics Executive Director  Neil Mawston.”Unspectacular hardware designs, limited uptake of cellular models, and a modest number of tablet-optimized services have been among some of the main reasons for Android’s mixed performance so far.”

These figures might change in Q3 as Google’s Nexus 7 is being successfully sold, but it’s very difficult for Nexus 7 to come closer to Apple’s Ipad in terms of sale.
