Pew Research: 2012 USA tablet marketshare (Fire 21%, Ipad 52%)

http://www.engadget.com/2012/10/02/p...ership-report/



Quote:
It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that more Americans than ever now own tablets, but if you'd ever wanted some quantifiable data to go along with that homespun wisdom, then the Pew Research Center is glad to help. According to its latest report, 22 percent of US adults now own a tablet of some form. While the iPad remains the dominant player in the space with a 52 percent market share, this figure starkly contrasts the 81 percent share that Pew reported in 2011. As you might expect, Android tablets have made significant inroads and now account for 48 percent of the overall tablet space. Leading the Android charge is the Kindle Fire, which alone accounts for 21 percent of all tablets sold. It's worth pointing out that Pew's survey was conducted before the release of either the Nexus 7 or the Kindle Fire HD, which means that even the most recent information is a bit behind the curve.
Ipad USA 2012: 52% share
Kindle Fire USA 2012: 21% share
other Android: 27% share

I found this comment amusing given the fact that the poll and the description of the poll show a dramatic erosion of Apple's market share...

The Android market share will be top. But that doesn't mean that the companies that's in it are blooming. Some of them will go under. Maybe Samsung is on top of the Androids sales now, Maybe HTC tomorrow. But one thing is for sure. Apple's place is in a solid ground.It's immovable for the next coming decades.

That's a significant shift over one year. And with the Nexus 7, new Nooks and Kindles, it's just getting started. Though it's a shame the nooks and kindles run a forked version of Android.

Until Mr. Root comes along and opens up the world.

That survey thing is somewhat surprising. I generally don't follow the numbers on these things (unless I need to make some half-arsed argument), but if those market share numbers are accurate, I am surprised that there aren't more Apple fondleslabs floating around. I would have thought that number to be a bit bigger with all the "Android tablets are on their deathbeds" that some tech sites spout.

The most amazing thing about this data to me is that 22% of Americans own tablets.

That basically tells us the market is ripe for tablets. As the prices tumble, the percentage of households with tablets is certain to increase. Especially with the shopping season around the corner.

Does anybody think that passing away of Steve Jobs has anything to do with this? I say yes, their money man is gone. And yes, their lawyers sure create a bitter impression in public about the company.

oh come on, there is much more to think about here!
For one, the tablet market is only just getting off the ground, of course Apple had a huge lead, they had the first one! Of course it takes time for other companies to design and biuld them etc etc

Surely it's global markets that matter, not one particular local market? Apple, Samsung, etc, are global companies.

Then why is the company worth more now than when he was alive?

And if you think the average person on the street knows anything about an Apple lawsuit, I think you're kidding yourself. The general public isn't that aware and they just don't care.

Because the stock market in general has been moving up since his death. Also they are still living off SJ's ideas that were in the pipeline. The real test is still the come, let us talk again in two years. We have yet to see anything really new post-Jobs. I think it is hard to argue that SJ is not THE person responsible for Apple's success and that he will be hard to replace -- especially now that others are coming on strong.

Really? According to whom? People like you who don't even use the products?

We've had multiple AppleTVs for years and they all work great.
