Tablet Market Still Falling, Even for Apple And Samsung

All hail, who we read more from iPad or any other device with at least 8 ″: again, we’re not here to give you some good news. The tablet market, in fact, you can’t go back and for the fifth time in a row showed a quarter of declining.

This is how the note research firm IDC, which reported that in Q4 2015 were shipped only 65.9 million tablets, 13.7% less compared to the same quarter of 2014. The year as a whole, then, did not go much better: 206.8 million tablets were sold, namely the 10.1% less compared to the 230.1 million in 2014.

Data provided by IDC (see tables below), we learn that this year Apple and Samsung have been topped the charts for the number of sales, but have recorded huge losses over the previous year. In the last quarter of 2015, instead, it went particularly well to Amazon and Huawei: whereas those 5.2 million units shipped may refer almost exclusively to Amazon Fire, we cannot but notice the success of low cost.
