Microsoft Takes Over 2.1% Of The Tablet Market As Android Overtakes iOS

numbers from Gartner show that 195 million tablets were sold in 2013, out of which 62 percent were Android models. This translates to unit sales of 121 million units. On the other hand, Apple had to contend with 70 million iPads, grabbing 36 percent of the market in the process. Microsoft, on the other hand, managed a 2.1 percent slice of the tablet pie. This is a bit surprising when you consider the sheer variety of Windows powered tablets that hit the store shelves in late 2013. But chances are that things will improve this year as the platform improves, and the rumored arrival of the Surface Mini — an affordable and smaller slate. They should, considering the fate of companies like Intel and other such PC makers is tied to all this.]]>
