Wednesday 28 May 2014 | 17:05 CET | News
Overall tablet shipments in India reached 780,000 in the first quarter of the year, a decrease of 32.8 percent compared to the year-ago quarter, according to IDC. The decrease in shipments was mainly due to the lack of new buyers in the market. Samsung was responsible for 22.5 percent of total tablets shipments in India in the quarter, followed by Apple, with 14.4 percent and Micromax, with 8.8 percent. IDC anticipates the overall tablet market to remain flat in 2014.
