Apple grows share of Chinese tablet market during Q2

updated 01:12 pm EDT, Wed August 8, 2012

Other famous vendors mostly sidelined

Apple continued to cement its position as the dominant tablet vendor in China during the second quarter, according to new data from Analysys International. The 2.34 million iPads sold in the region gave Apple a 72.66 percent marketshare; units were up 7.8 percent quarter-to-quarter, and 63.4 percent year-over-year. Notably Apple managed the feat despite only launching the third-generation iPad in the mainland on July 20th.

Except for Apple's control, the landscape of the Chinese tablet market looks vastly different from the US and international ones. Lenovo is in second place at 8.38 percent, while a company virtually unknown in North America and Europe, Eben, is in third at 3.63 percent. Samsung is just fourth in China at 3.59 percent,followed by Acer at 3.27 percent. ASUS is even farther back at 1.86 percent; skipping several positions, Google-owned Motorola Mobility is in 10th with just 0.26 percent of sales.

    That assumes that all these sales are for the iPad 3. Oh, excuse me, the 'new iPad'. Man, why can't I remember that?
