idc tablets q4 2013 IDC: Apples iPad fell to 33.8% tablet share in Q4 2013, Samsung took second with 18.8%, Amazon third with 7.6%
While this is based on preliminary data, it"s worth noting that IDC found the market"s growth rate is down dramatically compared to the year-over-year rates of the same quarter one year ago: 87.1 percent. Given the push for cheaper and cheaper devices with more and more features, some players will likely be out of the game sooner or later.

The latest estimates come from IDC, which says the tablet market grew 28.2 percent year-over-year. In short, the iPad"s loss was more or less equivalent to the gain for Android tablets (IDC didn"t even mention Windows tablets):
Q4 2013 Tablets: Apple First, Samsung Second, Amazon Third
"It"s becoming increasingly clear that markets such as the U.S. The firm notes this indicates a significant slowing of the overall market.. Apple"s iPad once again took first place, although it dropped to 33.8 percent market share, while Samsung grew its share to 18.8 percent to keep second place.
IDC attributes Apple"s share losses to continued success from competitors both large and small, causing it to "only" ship 26 million tablets in the quarter. Q4 2013 saw 76.9 million units ship worldwide, up from 60 million the same quarter last year. While the quarter represented the company"s most successful on record, iPad shipments grew 13.5 percent year-over-year, which was well http://www.Gaywebcamchat.me below the industry average.


On the Android side, Samsung once again secured the second position with shipments of about 14.5 million units.
The tablet market is still growing, but the rate is beginning to slow down. Amazon fell to 5.8 percent share but managed to maintain third place, Asus held steady in fourth at 5.1 percent share, and Lenovo jumped to 3.4 percent.
