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

PC Sales Touch Bottom, 80million shipments lowest since 2008






The PC Industry Shrank Another 9%, Gartner Says | Business Insider India: "Gartner released its quarterly PC report and the news isn't good. But it isn't all bad either.

Worldwide, the PC industry declined another 8.6% to 80.3 million units total. That's the lowest number of PC sold in a quarter since the economy crashed in 2008, Gartner analyst Mikako Kitagawa said."

Lenovo was still the No. 1 biggest vendor worldwide, with nearly 18% share, a position it took from HP last quarter. HP had 17% share, Dell had nearly 12%, Acer had 8% and Asus had 6%.

The good news was that the PC industry actually grew 3.5% over the year-ago quarter in the U.S. This is the "back-to-school" quarter and that's why people were buying more PCs

How much does it costs the Tech firms  to manufacture a Tablet :Does the higher price of iPad makes more profit for Apple.

It went on sale on October 26 priced at $499, for a profit margin of around 46 percent. Surface comes with a 10.6-inch (26.9-centimeter) screen measured diagonally, and can access the internet only through Wi-Fi. The price is for its base model with 32 gigabytes of memory.



With a similar configuration, the Microsoft Surface Tablet  makes more  more profit han Apple did when it released its third-generation iPad in March.



Apple's third-generation Wi-Fi-only iPad with 32GB of memory and a 9.7-inch (24.6-centimeter) screen cost an estimated $333 and retailed for $599, for a 44%  profit margin. The 16GB base model cost $316 and was priced at $499, for a profit margin of 37 percent.

Google Nexus 7 Tablet Sold Out across Online Stores

Asus Google Nexus 7 Spec Chart



Google’s $250 16GB Nexus 7 tablet disappeared from Google’s online Play store over the weekend due to overwhelming demand, according to an online report. A message on Google Play advises tablet shoppers to sign up for e-mail alerts to learn when the tablet is back in stock. 


Google Nexus 7 Tablet Sells Out Online - Datamation: "Roughly 10 days after Google began shipping Nexus 7 preorders, the 16 GB version of Google's 7-inch tablet is sold out from its online store. The Google Play store greets potential buyers of the tablet, which is priced at $249, with a "coming soon" message and an optional email notification sign up.



Google has not said why the 16GB Nexus 7 is no longer for sale, but anonymous sources “close to Google” told the Guardian that the search giant “seriously underestimated” demand.



The 8 GB version, which costs $199, is still available."Google has not released sales figures, but selling out of the Asus-built device is a good sign. A quick survey of other online stores, including OfficeMax and B&H, reveals that the tablet is currently in short supply.

A low price helps, too. The 8 GB Nexus 7 model competes against Amazon's hot-selling, although aging, Kindle Fire in price while delivering more modern hardware. For $50 more, buyers get twice the storage capacity.
