The total market grew to 4.4 million tablets in the September quarter from 3.5 million in the previous quarter, the researcher said.
“The tablet wars are up and running. Apple has quickly leveraged its famous brand, an extensive retail presence and user-friendly design to develop the tablet segment into a multi-billion-dollar global business,” said SA analyst Neil Mawston.
Mawston said the other platforms — Android, Microsoft, MeeGo of Nokia and Intel, Hewlett-Packard’s webOS and RIM’s Blackberry — have already much ground to make up.
