Default Apple tops Q2 tablet shipments

IDC's quarterly tablet tracker is out, and, as per usual, the analysts are claiming strong purchases for Apple kept the sector robust.

According to its data, worldwide tablet shipments altogether for Q2 2012 reached 25 million units - a hefty boost up from 18.7 million in the first quarter at 33.6 percent. This is 66.2 percent growth compared to the same time last year, which saw 15 million units shipped.

Apple, according to IDC, shipped 17 million iPads in Q2, up from 11.8 million in the previous quarter and beating its previous record of 15.4 million in Q4 2011. Samsung trailed behind for now, but still experienced excellent growth considering - making secnod place at 2.4 million units shipped for the quarter, up from 1.1 million year on year.

Amazon posted 1.2 million, and Asus shipped 855,454. Acer was the only company in the top five that saw year on year numbers decline, however, this is not factoring in Google and Asus' Nexus 7, which is proving very popular.

This could be among the last quarters were Apple showed such an easy dominance in the tablet market. Google's Nexus 7 and Microsoft's Surface threaten to challenge Cupertino, and another version of Amazon's Kindle Fire is expected too.
