    When it comes to tablets, it appears that Samsung and Apple are likely to have a really good 2013. According to the latest parts supplier intel, Apple and Samsung are likely to ship 110 Million tablets this year. This ends up being over double the total amount of all international branded tablets combined. In fact, it's still 10 Million more than all of the white box tablets that will ship from China as well. Here's a quote with some additional detail,

    Apparently, despite the Nexus 7 and several other options from Asus and others, Samsung is still the top selling Android tablet, and of course, Apple still reigns supreme for total tablets shipping. Despite this, it is still possible that this year will be the first year we see more total Android tablets ship than Apple tablets (when you combine all the different brands and the OEM white box units).
