Research firm IDC and their latest numbers are showing that current market leader Apple with their iPad are losing tablet market share. Apple's tablet market share dropped from 51.7% to 43.6%, where in the last three months of 2012 Samsung jumped up to 15.1%.

When taking in consideration the year-over-year numbers, Samsung's growth has been huge where a year ago they sold just 2.2 million tablets, and twelve months later they're seeing sales of 7.9 million units.

The tablet market is expected to get much more serious this year, with multiple Nexus tablets from Google, as well as Microsoft's upcoming Surface Pro slate.
