Media Tablet Sales – Graphic of the Day

Apple shipped 15.4 million iPads during Q4 2011, according to IHS iSuppli. While shipments were up 39% from 11.1 million in Q3, Apple’s share of the global media tablet market slipped to 57% in Q4, down from 64% in Q3. Soaring sales of Amazon’s Kindle Fire and other low-priced tablets played an important role in trimming Apple’s market share. Today’s graphic shows the number of tablets shipped by brand and the market share represented by each one.
