    Android Tablet Sales Surge Q3 at Expense of iPad; Apple's Marketshare Drops to 50.4%

    The newest Quarter 3 IDC marketshare report is out for the tablet market, and Apple's marketshare was eroded by Android even further. Sales of the Apple iPad in Q3 are down to 50.4%, from 65.5%. This is a quarter-on-quarter drop of over 15%. Android tablet sales surged during this period, with Samsung, Amazon and Asus seeing the most gain.

    Samsung's tablet sales rose 5.1 Million, which was a 115% increase from Q2 2012, and they grabbed a full 18.4% of the tablet market. Amazon grew their marketshare up to a total of 9%. Asus saw the largest percentage gain. Sales of the Nexus 7 (manufactured by Asus) helped propel them to 8.6% total marketshare which was a 242.9% jump from the previous quarter. According to the report, the tablet market grew 49.5% in Q3, which was a 6.7% improvement over the number posted in Q2.

    You know, if you have a cookie jar and they is only one kind of cookie in it, say oatmeal raisin, people will eat that one kind of cookie. But when you have a cookie jar with 10 different kinds of cookies, people will reach in and get the cookie they like. Not every cookie is liked so some will not get eaten. Some people will continue to eat the oatmeal raisin cookies because they know its an ok cookie, but are scared to taste any of the others. Others will only eat the oatmeal raisin cookies becasue they are subborn to change. Others however will eat the other cookies and realize that oatmeal raisin cookies suck, don't taste good and go after the much more delicioius flavored cookies. Perhaps jelly bean flavor cookies.

    Needless to say, apple was king because they were there first and people bought them. Now that there are more options and those options are becoming much more visible, they are bleeding customers. Their prices and lack of current innovation is killing them. Oh well, cya Apple.

    It was bound to go down. Interesting because we just had a discussion on here not too long ago about how Apple couldn't keep doing the same old, same old and stay on top for very long.
