Here come the Android tablets- 22 percent market share already

Samsung must be feeling pretty good about things with Bloomberg reporting that Android tablets grabbed 22 percent market share last quarter.

Samsung must be feeling pretty good about things with Bloomberg reporting that Android tablets grabbed 22 percent market share last quarter. Samsung makes the Galaxy Tab, which sold 2 million units in the same period. That's pretty much the entire 2.1 million Android tablets sold that makes up the 22 percent of the Android tablet market as reported by Bloomberg.

Apple has owned the tablet market with the iPad until the Android tablets started appearing. There have been 14.8 million iPads sold since its introduction last year, with a whopping 7.3 million of those occurring in the fourth quarter. While the iPad market share dropped from 96 percent to 75 percent, it's probably not a real drop. Market demand is just beginning, and sales of competitor devices are likely new customers to the tablet genre, and not taking sales from Apple.
