Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed an interesting stat on today's earnings call: iPads outsold desktop PCs in the fourth quarter of 2012.Right now, there is no tablet market. There's an iPad market.
Microsoft and its PC partners are going to have to spend an awful lot on advertising to change that perception.

The iPad  forms  17% of the overall PC market, which Gartner pegged at 92.2 million units in the last quarter of 2012. In June, it was at 11%. A year ago, it was 7%.

iPad 3 Coming To Stores Nearest To You in Early 2012

Apple has reportedly begun trial production on its next-generation iPad tablet device and it’s scheduled to launch in early 2012.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple has begun ordering chips, display panels and other key components for the iPad 3. The next generation iPad is expected to feature a high resolution display - 2048 by 1536 compared with 1024 by 768 in the iPad 2 - and Apple's suppliers have already shipped small quantities of components for the sampling of the iPad 3. Suppliers said Apple has placed orders for a 9.7-inch screen device.The report didn’t say anything about the iPad 3s rumored OLED screen, however.)

Apple Inc. is working with component suppliers and its assembler in Asia for the trial production of its next generation iPad from October, people familiar with the situation say, as it looks to stay ahead of the competition in the fast-growing tablet computer market.

Apple  has ordered key components such as display panels and chips for a new iPad it is aiming to launch in early 2012,  according to sources close to Apple.Like many other big personal-computer and consumer-electronics brands, doesn't actually make most of its products. It hires manufacturing specialists - mainly companies from Taiwan that have extensive operations in China - to assemble its gadgets based on Apple's designs. They use parts from other outside suppliers, many of which also are from Taiwan and elsewhere in Asia. The arrangement frees Apple and its fellow vendors from running complicated, labor-intensive production lines, while the ability of Taiwanese companies to slash manufacturing costs helps cut product prices over time.One supplier claimed that Apple has already placed orders to develop 1.5 million iPad 3s in the fourth quarter.

Apple announced the iPad 2 in March, just 15 months after the launch of the first-generation iPad. The accelerated release cycle has helped Apple maintain a dominant share of the tablet market, which Thursday claimed its first victim: the HP TouchPad

The Ipad Sales Vs Global Tablet Sales: Infographic






A new report from online publishing company Yudu Media presents a very convincing case that when it comes to marketing and audience, few devices (tablets or otherwise) can compare with the iPad. The report collects the findings of a number of different surveys and research outlets, painting a picture of a device tailor-made to sell content, products and services. Here’s a picture of some of the more noteworthy findings within Yudu’s report









Tablet demand is still underappreciated: shipments could reach 100 million by 2012, in our bull case scenario. A series of proprietary surveys  conducted and reported by Morgan Stanely covering more than 8,000 consumers and 50 chief information officers suggest that tablets are accelerating theadoption of the mobile internet. 

The data yielded several surprises: 
1) two-thirds of companies expect to allow tablets on their networks within a year;
2) consumer interest in tablets is even greater outside of the US, and
3) users are moving beyond web surfing,email, games, video, and applications to content creation. 

Tablets are additive to the broader computing market, and we see more beneficiaries than challenged companies. Tablet disruption is not yet discounted by the market in many industries.Tablets should reduce PC market growth by 3 percentage points in 2011—maybe more over the long term. Like smartphones, tablet growth is likely to benefit the established leaders while challenging legacy technology. The impact on printing companies may be the most underappreciated cannibalization story and companies like AMD, Dell, Lexmark, and Ricoh's potentially challenged from tablets.

Morgan Stanley  report on The Tablet Market  indicate that Apple and Samsung Electronics are the most probable tablet beneficiaries, with tablets core to the investment thesis. ARM Holdings, Broadcom, and SanDisk help provide users with fast, touch-enabled, and power-efficient mobile devices and should enjoy greater scale if tablet growth surprises to the upside. Medium term, there are opportunities for software companies in applications, management, and security. Tablets’ impact on Wintel players Hewlett-Packard, Intel, and Microsoft has largely been discounted, and earnings risk appears limited, partially due to diversification.
