Tablets gain more ground on PCs: Survey

 
 

WASHINGTON (AFP) - One-third of computers sold worldwide in the fourth quarter of 2012 was a tablet, according to a survey released on Wednesday.

The research firm Canalys said that with PCs and tablets combined, the market grew 12 per cent year-on-year in the last three months to reach 134 million units.

With its iPads and other computers, Apple led the market with 27 million units, and a 20 per cent market share.

That compared with 15 million for second-place Hewlett-Packard, which was just 200,000 units ahead of China-based Lenovo. Each had a share of 11 per cent.
