Tablet Sales Up, iPad Market Share Down

In the Q2 2011, Apple sold 6 million more iPads that a year ago and their market share dropped over 30%. This was bound to happen since Android and other competing tablets were non-existent around this time last year. Motorola, Samsung, Acer, BlackBerry, and HP have begun to sell tablet computers with limited success. Amazon is expected to expand the Kindle and get into the Android tablet market later this fall, this will certainly stir the pot even further.

It was rumored that RIM would discontinue the PlayBook a couple weeks back, RIM has came forward to announce there are "no plans to discontinue" the tablet. Tablet sales are more that 3 times what they were a year ago and are expected to grow steadilty for a couple more years.
