We’ve said before that the iPad is still the definitive tablet king in the market today, but that doesn’t mean it’s crown is silently being destroyed since the last year. A report from Strategy Analytics shows that in Q2 of 2010, Apple’s iPad held a dominating 94.3% of the tablet market share, but that number has dropped to 61.3% after Q2 results this year. That’s a full 33% drop, and Android took most of that. Android started off at only 2.9% market share Q2 of last year, but the latest results shown it is now taking just over 30% and increasing shipments from 100,000 units to 4.6 million units in the last quarter.
We’re still hotly debating which Android tablet can be considered the king in that group, but we can also see that overall Android is finally starting to take grasp of the tablet world. With more tablets being announced weekly, and with the highly anticipated (but still not announced) Amazon tablet most likely coming in the next month, you can expect Apple’s decline to continue. How much longer do you think it will take before Android takes the majority tablet market share?
