IDC is hiking its 2012 tablet shipment forecast to 106.1M units from a prior 87.7M - a level that translates into 54% Y/Y growth. Gartner, it should be noted, is estimating 368M PCs will be shipped this year, which suggests the ratio of  PC shipments to tablet shipments may be only a little over 3:1 in 2012. IDC also estimates Amazon (AMZN) sold 4.7M Kindle Fires in Q4, good for 16.8% of the tablet market.

    The growth increase seems reasonable. Apple is just beginning their major global growth phase.
