Can Amazon, Asus and Samsung compete with Apple in the tablet market?
Apple is still giving huge competition to its rival companies especially in terms of its tablet shipments. The company still has its number one niche in its tablet shipment leaving behind Amazon, BN and Asus. According to NPD’s DisplaySearch wing:“Apple is still sitting at the top of the mountain and accounts for 59.1% of its tablet shipped in Q4 in 2011 while Amazon having second place accounting for 16.7% of its tablet shipments.”
By reading at this research analysis, it will not come out as a surprise for many people. The reason is that a leading company like Apple has touched millions and billions of people’s hearts by manufacturing the most attention grabbing devices for them. Due to high demand for its devices, Apple is still shipping its products to number of markets in the world and now has become a leader in shipping its gadgets especially in terms of its tablets.
NPD DisplaySearch also brings out this interesting point that Amazon’s Kindle Fire and BN’s Nook Tablet being only available in United States have earned third and fourth place, but that was just according to NPD’s rankings. Samsung and Asus also hit solid results but in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) markets. But, no matter what these search polls say, Apple has the number one spot in shipping the most number of tablets in the world. It seems now a long time since we will be able to see a sold competitor for Apple. The company is shipping, earning and generating huge revenues for its company. With the launch of Apple’s iPad 3 in March, it wouldn’t be able to see its successor any time sooner now. It’s definitely going to be one hell of a fight but the current winner is Apple. Let’s see if in future, the number one spot will be taken by any other company or not?
