Apple maintains lead in tablet share but Android catching up
A new report from ABI Research has revealed that Apple has lost some of its huge tablet lead, however it still beats the rest of the competition.
As part of ABI Research’s Media Tablets and eReaders research service, the report finds that Apple had 55% tablet shipments, although that share is the lowest since Apple launched the iPad in 2010.
Android, contrastingly, has 44% tablet shipment share. Nearly 14% of Apple’s share was given up to competitors such as Amazon, Google and Samsung.
