Tablets OS Market Share

Since the launch of iPad, the tablets have caught our attention. Tablets have not been launched by many companies including Amazon which recently launched the tablet. Companies like HP decided to move out of the tablet business because they realized that the tablet market is not up to their expectation. All this makes us to think if there is indeed a tablet market or is it just the hype around iPad that is resulting in high sales of tablets. Till last year I would have agreed with the statement that there is no tablet market but only the iPad market but the suddenly Android seems to have captured a lot of tablet share and the vendors have realized that they need to discover the true pricing for their products. The table below from Strategy Analytics provides the tablets operating system share. Clearly, Android is silently gaining on back of Samsung and smaller vendors.
