Hot sales of Apple Inc.’s iPad are among the main reasons why IDC has decided to adjust upward its projection recently. IDC opines that the product will account for a nearly 70% share of the estimated global tablet PC sales figure mentioned above as the biggest contributor to the market this year.
IDC’s optimism about iPad makes a lot of sense, as sales of the product reached 9.25 million units to command a 68.3% share of the global market in the second quarter of this year, when a total of 13.6 million units of various tablets were sold worldwide. The product’s market share in the second quarter was higher than 65.7% achieved in the first quarter.
