Tablet shipments jump 304 percent in second quarter
“The tablet market is growing faster than expected, new research released today by IDC has found.
According to the research firm, 13.6 million tablets were shipped worldwide in the second quarter, representing an 88.9 percent gain over the first quarter of 2011. Even more impressive, that figure was up a whopping 303.8 percent compared to the second quarter of 2010.
Such strong performance has prompted IDC to revise its PC shipment forecast up. The research firm now believes that 62.5 million tablets will hit store shelves this year, rather than its previous projection of 53.5 million units.”
