Despite the strong growth achieved by iPad sales, tablet PCs continue to decline for the eleventh quarter in a row!
In the second quarter of the year, 37.9 million tablets were shipped, with a decline of more than 2 million compared to the same quarter of last year, and a decline of 3.4% annually.
Apple topped the list with about 11.6 million iPads, accounting for nearly 20 percent of global shipments. Samsung came in second with half of Apple’s 6 million share, 16 percent in shipments and Huawei with half Samsung’s share of 3 million computers and only 8 percent.
Amazon and Lenovo ranked fourth and fifth with 2.2 and 2.4 million respectively.

Amazon and Huawei had the highest growth in shipments compared to last year, while Samsung shipments dropped slightly, and Lenovo and other companies declined.
Some recovery in the Tablet PC market is expected in the second half of this year thanks to the support of Windows for ARM processors, so new Windows Tablet PCs are emerging.
