  • Tablet shipments rose an eye-popping 117% Y/Y in Q1 to 40.6M, estimates Strategy Analytics after digesting Apple's (AAPL) iPad data. For reference, IDC estimates PC shipments fell 13.9% Y/Y in Q1 to 76.9M, which indicates the PC/tablet sales ratio is now below 2:1. The iPad is estimated to have 48.2% of the market, and Android (GOOG) tablets 43.4%. Windows 8/RT (MSFT) is believed to have a 7.4% share, but that only amounts to 3M units. In March, IDC raised its 2013 tablet forecast to 190.9M units, while estimating Android would have 48.8% of the market and the iPad 46%. [View news story]
    To Jesse99,
    "Strategy Analytics" said, " ...rose...117% ... to 40.6M". So it implies, " rose ..117% from 34.7M to 40.6M".
    Posting a nonsensical comment like, "What is 117% of zero?" may seem cute to you, but it is meaningless and it wastes everybody's time.
