Tablets with the Android operating system for the first time in 10 years in total occupied less than half of the market.
A Strategy Analytics report says that in the second quarter, Android occupied 49% of the tablet market, and this is the first time in the last 10 years. In annual terms, this does correspond to a drop in sales of an incredible 21%.
iPadOS holds 38% of the market, but tablet sales are down 7% from a year ago. The share of Windows decreased to 11% (sales fell by 14%), but the share of other operating systems increased to 2%. In quantitative terms, this corresponds to an increase of 69%, to 0.6 million devices sold in the quarter. This is mainly the merit of Huawei and its HarmonyOS.
In terms of brands, Apple remains the leader with a share of 38%, followed by Samsung (18%), Lenovo (9%), Amazon (9%) and Huawei (4%). At the same time, in general, the tablet market sank by 15%, and none of the companies on the leaderboard showed growth.
