iPad Takes 70% of Chinese Tablet Sales

Recently, Apple  has  cashing in on China with the iPad, iPhone and Mac line of computers. Because of this, all of Apple’s platforms have been gaining markershare like crazy in China and parts of Asia. In fact, China Daily reports that Apple controls roughly 72.6% of the tablet market in China. These numbers are up just over 20% from Q1. These numbers are coming from the market researcher Analysys International.

The expected reason for this jump in iPad sales is because the new iPad was finally approved for sale in China and the iPad 2′s price was dropped. Another reason these numbers are so high is because China does not yet offer the Kindle Fire, Nook Color/Tablet or the Nexus 7, so there isn’t much competition from the lower end of the tablet market within China. If you’re curious, the second leading tablet in China is produced by Lenovo and holds just 8.38% of tablet marketshare in China. China Daily also reports that Samsung holds only 3.59% of the tablet marketshare. China Daily has not revealed markershare for other Android tables as of now, however, we hope to see more marketshare specifics in the future.
