"The erosion in Apple's unit shipment market share was inevitable," IHS director of tablet research Rhoda Alexander said in a statement. "Cheaper almost always wins the volume race, and competitors were quick to adjust pricing when it became clear that it was impossible to achieve anything close to Apple's unit growth at the same price level."Apple may be losing tablet market share, but the company is still scoring healthy sales on the iPad. "Interestingly, in an environment where competitors on both the Android and Windows sides of the market are using price cuts as their most powerful marketing tool, Apple actually increased its revenue per iPad unit in the third quarter by $3," Alexander said. "Hardware profit plays a big role in Apple's success, enabling the design, durability, and performance innovations that, in turn, support Apple's premium pricing."Apple also has the greatest number of tablets in the hands of consumers. Since the launch of the initial iPad in April 2010, Apple has sold 170 million tablets, IHS said. In contrast, Samsung has shipped 54 million tablets since it entered the market in the fourth quarter of 2010.
iPad shipments and market share were down in the third quarter, as archrival Samsung closes in with upticks in tablet shipments and market share, says research firm IHS, Apple shipped enough iPads last quarter to continue its reign as the No, 1 tablet vendor, For the third quarter, Apple shipped 14.25 million iPads, giving it a market apple - iphone 8/7 leather case - (product)red share of 29.7 percent, research firm IHS said on Wednesday, Those numbers were down from the second quarter when shipments totaled 14.62 million and market share rang in at 33.5 percent..
The images follow a Google+ post on Monday that announced the upgrade. Google is offering Explorers who purchased Glass before Monday a one-time option to exchange their current device for the upgraded version. Google didn't say exactly when the new devices will be available, only that it would notify Explorers in November with the next steps for the swap program. Explorers can also switch to a different colored Glass during the one-time swap. The hardware improvement comes along with the expansion of Google's Glass Explorer program. Over the next few weeks, current Explorers can invite up to three people to join the program, Google said. Those people will be required to buy Glass to get started.
