Global tablet sales soared last quarter, with worldwide shipments reaching a record 52.5 million units — a 74 percent increase over the previous quarter. “We expected a very strong fourth quarter,” says IDC tablet research director Tom Mainelli, “and the market didn’t disappoint. The record-breaking quarter stands in stark contrast to the PC market, which saw shipments decline during the quarter for the first time in more than five years.”
Samsung‘s share of the same market more than doubled year-over-year, from 7.3 to 15.1 percent. Apple’s rival is due to release their new line of Galaxy Tab 3 tablets, ranging in size from 7 to 10.1 inches.
