According to Strategy Analytics' latest report, market share for Android-based tablets have risen considerably. The report states that Android-based tablets now consume 41% of the total tablet market share, or just under 25 million units.

This means that year-over-year, we're looking at double the tablets sold, with market share increasing by 12%. This growth comes at the expense of Apple's iOS platform, whose market share has dropped from 65% to 56% year-over-year.


A large number of these tablet sales were from retail giant and device maker Amazon, a main competitor of Google. What do you think of these numbers? It's good to see Google making some waves in the market, and Apple seeing a drop, as it will only [hopefully] push them to innovate more and stop being stagnant in the market.
