The iPad took an overwhelming 85 percent of the tablet market share 2010, this according to new research released on Wednesday.
New York based ABI Research gives us the result of the research. Along with two other companies (Samsung and Archos), Apple possesses 95 percent of the total market share – impressive.
ABI’s Senior Analyst Jeff Orr says:
Many new entrants are looking to differentiate themselves from the $600+ ASP of the iPad, so low-feature and low-cost designs will become common, we expect between 40 and 50 million media tablets to ship worldwide in 2011.
But we could see a difference in 2011 as Motorola’s Xoom and RIM’s Playbook are joining the market and could pinch market share from Apple.
