IDC Tablet Shipments and Forecasts

idc.gifIDC has the latest tablet shipments and forecasts that show that Android is continuing to gain market share at the expense of iOS. The numbers also suggest it’s now clear that Windows 8 tablets won’t be a threat to either iOS or Android.

I am surprised IDC think iOS will have about 30% market share in 2017. I think that the prevalence of very cheap Android tablets will have a greater influence.
