Android fans will be rejoicing to hear that Android tablet shipments will be passing Apple iPad this year, for the first time ever. Research house IDC say that Android will be claiming more market share in 2013.
Android tablets are made in a variety of sizes and shapes, however Apple have yet to release a budget model which means they won’t be able to expand at the same speed as the Android platform.
iPad and iPhone shipments are projected to continue to grow but Samsung and other Android manufacturers are slowly chipping away at market share and sales.
Tomorrow Samsung will be showing their fourth generation Galaxy flagship model. This smartphone knocked Apple from the top spot for some of last year.
Apple shares have dropped by more than a third of their value since September as analysts feel the company is losing their ‘competitive edge’ since iconic leader Steve Jobs passed away from cancer.
Peter Misek from Jefferies said that Apple could be compared to Blackberry claiming that Apple are no longer on the attack, but on the defensive against Samsung products.
Kitguru says: Will the situation get worse for Apple in 2015/2016 or will they come up with a brand new, killer product.
