Industry analyst Strategy Analytics has released some interesting data on the worldwide tablet market share battle, showing that Android accounted for a whopping 30% of the market in Q2 of 2011. This is quite amazingly fast growth, as during the same quarter of 2010 Android barely registered with only 2.9% of the tablet scene.
Here’s a man from SA explaining the data:
“Android captured 30 percent share of global tablet shipments in Q2 2011. Multiple Android models distributed across multiple countries by multiple brands such as Samsung, Acer, Asus, Motorola and others are driving volumes. However, no Android vendor yet offers a blockbuster model to rival the iPad, and demand for many Android vendors’ products remains patchy”
And here’s all that again in an easily-digestible chart:
From literally zero to over 4.5 million in 12 months for Android as a tablet OS. Nice. This chart comes via Mobile Business Briefing. If you’d like to read the full Strategy Analytics report it’s online here.
