In Q2 of 2011 iPad has more than two thirds of the tablet market with a market share of 68.1% in Q3, but it seems that things have changed. Today those from IDC have published estimates of sales in Q3 of 2011 and iPad tablet seems to have lost about 7% of market share reaching a value of 61.5%.

Of course, Android tablets were “stealing” market share and I think that Kindle iPad tablet is assigned a part of a great “victory” because it was sold in millions of copies worldwide.

Apple’s larger portfolio of tablet-specific apps, upcoming iPad versions, and growing physical store presence in key emerging markets like Asia/Pacific will help maintain its global leadership.

iPad tablet market is compared with a mixture of tablets launched by various manufacturers but if you compare strictly the manufacturers then Apple has a market share of 10 times higher than Samsung, the largest manufacturer of tablets in the world.

In 2012 Apple will continue to lose market share now held us tablets will be launched, they will become increasingly better and increasingly will attract more users. I think that an iPad 3 with quad-core would save the day for Apple, but remains to be seen if at the company there is the same thinking.
