iPad will rule the Tablet market claims Gartner

Written by Nick Farell


No serious challenges
It is starting to look like the Tablet thing will be an Apple only affair, according to analysts Gartner.

Big G said that mounting competition will see Apple's share of the touchscreen tablet market decline but the iPad will still make up nearly half of all tablets sold in 2015. The iPad will account for 47 percent of worldwide sales of 294.3 million tablets in 2015, down from 63.5 percent of 108.2 million units to be sold in 2012 and 68.7 percent of 69.7 million tablets to be sold this year. This year Apple has 83.9 percent of the total 17.6 million tablets sold in 2010.

Google's Android operating system will see its market share rise steadily from 14.2 percent last year, to 19.9 percent this year, to 24.4 percent in 2012 and 38.6 percent in 2015. You can forget all about RIM, which will have opnly 10 per cent by 2015 but Gartner was optimistic about HP's WebOS operating system acquired from Palm. WebOS tablets will have 4.0 percent of the market by the end of 2011, 3.9 percent by 2012 and 3.0 percent by 2015.

Gartner seemed to have forgotten all about Microsoft. The risk is that the tablet thing is entirely an Apple fad, in which case it will disappear if punters get bored. Rather than be a game changer that could mean that the iPad becomes a technology dead end.

It doesn't take much to excite Apple's fanboys. All it takes is a bug fix and more apps. Also a new skin every year without major changes to OS. No one really expect Android to catch up so quick in the mobile market and it will surprise everyone this year with more 3.0 devices.

Unless you work for Google, it appears you're an Android fanboy. What distinguishes an apple fanboy from a google fanboy, or any other company for that matter?

Why Apple won't go away and continue to rule.

WTF? "Gartner was optimistic about HP's WebOS operating system acquired from Palm. WebOS tablets will have 4.0 percent of the market by the end of 2011, 3.9 percent by 2012 and 3.0 percent by 2015." Isn't that losing market share? :D

Thats "maybe", "they" and "targeting" dumb@$$! Maybe they could find what that fishy smell is and laser your legs closed, or maybe they could just send you back to the 4th grade! :D

You're 5yrs old in the 4th grade and dumb as a door knob? No, they don't. You won't use spell check next time rectal drip, because you didn't use it this time, or the time before that! Why do you have to use it, are you stupid or something? :lol:

Another reason Apple will rule is that Android is too slow for gaming!
