Strategy Analytics: Android now dominates tablet market as iOS sales slow down

The Android platform continues its dominance in tablet market with its shipments reaching 24.2 million in the second quarter of 2013. According to a research from Strategy Analytics, Android currently has 67 % of the tablet market, while the Apple owned iOS has declined to 28%. Windows is also on the rise, but has only managed to secure a 4.5% slice so far.

The tablet market has seen a new rise with the overall shipments reaching 36.2 million in Q2, 2013. That’s of course, a significant gain over the same period last year, when 24.6 million tablets were shipped.

Surprisingly, Apple’s iOS shipments were recorded as 14.6 million iPads in Q2, 2013 which is a 14% decline year-on-year. Meanwhile, Microsoft has managed to gain ground by increasing its shipments more than ten times. The analysts expect another increase in Windows shipments in the Q3 following the recent price cut.
