IDC yesterday released their worldwide tablet shipment estimates for the last quarter of 2013.
At 76.9 million they are pretty close to the pre-Apple estimates of Digitimes which we commented on last week and confirm the growth slowdown
- Apple is definitive at 74.2 million being about 34% in market share terms with an increase this quarter.
- Samsung we estimate is around 41 million that’s 19% market share and shows a drop this quarter
- Asus (including Google‘s Nexus) we estimate is around 12 million that’s 5.5% market share
- Amazon comes in at just under 10 million which is virtually the same as last year and is 5% market share. Their remarkable profile, of circa 1 million sales every quarter apart from the holiday season when it jumps to 6 million, continues.
