Tuesday 30 July 2013 | 02:49 CET | News
In the second quarter, global tablet shipments grew 46.6 percent year-on-year to 29.32 million units. The number was down 8.2 percent sequentially, according to Digitimes Research. As overall market demand is declining, both iPad and non-iPad product shipments have been impacted. Apple tablet shipments fell 2.7 percent year-on-year and 25.1 percent from the previous quarter to 14.6 million due to a significant drop in iPad mini shipments. Non-iPad shipments grew 18.5 percent quarter-on-quarter to 14.72 million units as new products and the new Nexus 7 contributed to volume. Apple and Samsung
