Apple leads 2011 Japanese tablet share by dominant margin

updated 12:10 pm EST, Fri January 27, 2012

Acer, Samsung in distant second-place spots

The iPad was the overwhelming leader in the Japanese tablet market during 2011, data from tracking firm BCN indicates. Apple held a 63.6 percent share of the Japanese market, easily eclipsing its closest rivals. Acer ranked second with just 9.8 percent, for instance, while Samsung came in third at 5.3 percent. Apple claimed second place in terms of tablet accessories with 13.3 percent; the company was flanked by Elecom at 21.6 percent, and Trinity at 12.8 percent.

Apple has remained largely in control of tablet sales around the world. Amazon's Kindle Fire, in fact, is generally believed to be the only serious iPad competition, and may have helped dramatically boost reported sales of Android tablets in the US. Other tablets -- even well-known models like the Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab, and ASUS Eee Pad Transformer -- have only managed to make small sales imprints.

    Serious in terms of pad-format device sales. But Fire is a "limited function" padlet. An at-home Amazon sales terminal. It's not a serious iPad substitute.

    Acer? They make a tablet?

    Who knew.
