Apple Leads Q4 Tablet Market; Amazon Climbs to No. 2

9 February 2018

From Wireless Week:

As Apple continued to dominate the tablet market in the final quarter of 2017, a new study finds that Amazon ousted Samsung to claim the second-largest share of the segment during the latest holiday shopping season.

The latest analysis from research firm IDC found that Apple shipped 13.2 million tablets in the final three months of the year. Although that represented a slight increase from the same period in 2016, the iPad maker bolstered its market share over that span from 24.3 percent to 26.6 percent.

Amazon, meanwhile, saw its shipments climb by 50 percent during that timeframe from 5.2 million to 7.7 million. The e-commerce giant bolstered its share of the tablet market from less than 10 percent to more than 15 percent.

  1. And Amazon has some big price cuts regularly…like right now on some of the Kindle Fire tablet sizes… the 7 inch is like 39 bucks.

      The deals come and go and they don’t last all that long, but if you time it right the prices are very good. EG, the HD6 was/is a cute little tablet that can still run the latest fireos (meaning you can get the google play store on it) and for $18 you can’t go wrong. Sometimes they have older Kindle ereaders on this page as well. I’ve purchased from here and you wouldn’t effectively know the product from new.
