It’s A Sad Time To Be A Tablet

Global tablet sales decline, with only Apple and Huawei showing growth

The amount of tablets shipped worldwide was 33 million this past quarter, decreasing by 5 million when compared to the same quarter last year. In previous years, tablet sales had been declining by single digit numbers, but this year that’s been bumped up to the double-digits. According to IDC, the global tablet market declined 13.5 percent this quarter.

Even Amazon, which single-handedly thwarted an invasion of cheap Chinese tablets, saw a decline.
