Thanks to strong iPad (AAPL) sales, IDC is once more hiking its 2012 tablet market forecast, this time to 107.4M units from a prior 106.1M. It's also raising its 2013 forecast to 142.8M units from 137.4M. The iPad is now expected to grow its share to 62.5% in 2012 from 58.2%, while Android (Kindle Fire/Nook Tablet included) is expected to fall to 36.5% from 38.7%. Also, in another example of tablet cannibalization, e-reader shipments are expected to fall slightly Y/Y to 28M. (iSuppli)

    Used to be only Yahoo Finance articles had folks replying to any random article with some unrelated Obama (or Bush) hate.

     

    There's room for differing opinions and there is a time and place for election year political rants. A news blurb about increased iPad sales estimates is not it.

     

    I hope someone comes up with the new Seeking Alpha soon so we can give SA over to the Yahoos.

    If you read the whole release from IDC, "After a very strong launch of new products in March, Apple's iPad shows few signs of slowing down... And Apple's decision to keep two iPad 2s in the market at lower prices—moving the entry-level price down to $399—seems to be paying off as well."

     

    The upcoming earnings release is shaping up to be another nice upset.
