IDC: By 2015 Android Tablets will Overtake iPad


According to a report from IDC that Android tablets will overtake iPad in 2015. Apple‘s Share in Tablet Market is going down by 61.5 % to 54.7 % in Q4. Android’s share is rising, largely at the expense of the iPad, which runs Apple’s iOS mobile operating system.

“As the sole vendor shipping iOS products, Apple will remain dominant in terms of worldwide vendor unit shipments,” said Mainelli. “However, the sheer number of vendors shipping low-priced, Android-based tablets means that Google‘s OS will overtake Apple’s in terms of worldwide market share by 2015.”

This Deduction in Apple’s Share is mainly due to Amazon Kindle Fire Sales.

“Amazon’s widely-reported entry into the media tablet market with a $199, 7-inch product seemed to raise consumers’ awareness of the category worldwide despite the fact that the Fire shipped almost exclusively in the U.S. in the fourth quarter,” said IDC analyst Tom Mainelli in a statement.
