Android tablets collectively outsell iPad tablets, however, the iPad is the single best-selling tablet on the market.
How the iPad Air Fared In Its First Quarter
Apple’s Fiscal 2014 Q1 quarter coincides with the calendar Q4 2013 (aka 4Q13). iPad sales data is as follows:
- 26M iPads sold in the quarter ending Dec 28, 2013
- Up from the 22.9M sold in the same quarter one year previous.
- An increase of 3.1M iPads, or 13.5%, over one year.
- This is nearly double the 14.1M iPads sold in Apple’s Fiscal Q3 2013 (Calendar Q2) — an increase of 11.9M iPads in Fiscal Q3, or 84.4%.
Which tablet do you own?
I own and recommend the iPad mini but also recommend the Nexus 7 if people are looking to save some money and still get a great tablet.
