Meanwhile, Samsung's market share jumped about 10 percentage points, Lenovo and Asus gained ground, but most of all, a group of "others," which likely includes Amazon's Kindle Fire and Microsoft's Surface families, has clearly started to bite on Apple's products and now beginning to chip  them away .

The ipad today has lost its mojo.. and unless Apple starts changing the market by launching newer tablets or starts to innovate newer technologies  and features( example wearable with Tablets.) Apple is in the risk of becoming history as far as tablets are concerned

THE TABLET WARS: Leaders and Laggards and also rans

The Tablet market gets close and dirty as Apple samsung continues to  grow

The tablet market grew by 11% over last year. The figure would have been higher had it not been for a decline of 1.5% in the second quarter of 2014, as opposed to the first quarter. The reason for the decline: Large enterprises are holding off on purchasing decisions. 

According to Jean Philippe Bouchard, IDC's director for tablets,Apple still leads the tablet market, but it hasn't had a good quarter as far as sales figures go. The iPad has lost ground to both Android and Windows tablets.

 Apple shipped 13.3 million units, a decline of 9.3% year-on-year. The company's market share stood at 26.9%. Apple has announced plans to fight back, and it is pinning its hopes on the enterprise sector to drive growth. 

 Samsung, Apple's biggest rival, had a mixed year and shipped 8.5 million units in  Q2,  2014 and saw its market share increase by 1.6% yoy. Samsung struggled to maintain its momentum and saw its market share slip to 17.2% in the second quarter.Lenevo shipped 2.4 million units and moved up to the No 3 ranking, displacing Asus from its position.

Acer Launches its latest Folding Ultrabook Laptop Aspire R7 ,

Acer Announces Weird Folding Laptop With The Trackpad In The Wrong Place - 


Acer announced a new  laptop that looks more liker a startship and less like a computing device 
 the  Aspire R7 .The ultra book  R7 is a bizarre hybrid of laptop, desktop, and tablet that flips and folds its way out of and into each category. It’s essentially a portable, multi-touch all-in-one PC.

The R7, which starts at $1,000, comes with a 15.6-inch HD touchscreen display, which, along with its trademark “Ezel” hinge, pretty severely limits it in the portability category. The  Aspire R7   goes on sale  on May 17 ,2013


One of the innovations of this laptop is its Ezel hinge design. The Ezel hinge is a flexible strip anchoring the display, and allows the display to sit vertically on the base, lie flat over it, or be flipped 180 degrees to float over the keyboard in "Ezel" mode. 


 The laptop also features an auto-reverse audio interface that moves the sound in whatever way the screen is oriented. The screen itself is an IPS (In-Plane Switching) display with a 1,920-by-1,080 resolution and 10-finger touch functionality

HP Dell Lead PC Shipments ,as Tablets Cannibalization Begins





Overall worldwide
shipments were down from 11.7 million units to 9.3 million units, a drop of 20.4 per cent. IDC shows a somewhat less abyssmal drop of 10.1 per cent, primarily because its estimated shipments for the second quarter of 2010 are just over 10 million.


In the US Acer shipped around two million units in the second quarter of 2010, but this fell to just over 1.5 million units in the same period this year, a drop of 22.6 per cent.

Acers market share dropped as a result from 11.3 per cent to 9.3 per cent, putting it in fifth place behind HP and Dell, which made small losses, and Apple and Toshiba, which made reasonable gains of 8.5 per cent and 3.3 per cent, respectively.

IDC showed an even worse fall for Acer in the US market of 25.4 per cent, thanks to a further shipment drop of close to 60,000 units.

The Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) market was by far the worst performing for Acer, with shipments dropping from over five million units to just 3.3 million units, a decline of 34.9 per cent. This knocked Acer into second place behind HP, which saw modest growth of 3.6 per cent in this region.
While HP remained the top dog in the industry, with growth of three per cent, Lenovo saw the strongest growth at around 22 per cent.Overall, PC shipments were up 2.3 per cent according to Gartner and 2.6 per cent according to IDC,
