Yesterday we told you guys about Samsung and their smartphones outselling Apple’s iPhone 2-to-1. Today we have a similar story to bring to you only this time the tables have turned. As you’ve no doubt guessed by now, when it comes to the tablet market, analysts are reporting Apple still reigns supreme, cornering as much as 68.3% of the tablet market last quarter.
This is after Android tablets managed to sell around 7.3 million units which, even though may sound impressive, stands in the shadow of Apple’s 17 million units sold. After performing some quick math, that’s roughly a 2-to-1 ratio over Android tabs. This is the highest Apple has seen their tablet market share since the 3rd quarter of 2010 (the year of the 1st iPad).
Android definitely has a lot of catching up to do but taking into account that these numbers don’t yet account for the overwhelming Nexus 7 sales — things should be a whole lot different next quarter. Google’s savior has finally come and Tim Cook is shaking in his mommy-sneakers. Time to send out reinforcements (more lawyers).
