Is my e-mail late or what? Just happened to notice that Digitimes is out late this afternoon hawking a report on the tablet market. In their promotional release they say they expect unit shipments to total 65 million for the year. Apparently they have come to the conclusion that Apple has 58% of the market but the non-iPad camp is catching up fast. They admit, at least in the e-mail I received, that Apple remains the dominant player but these new entrants are "posing a threat to the iPad."
The release also states that Texas Instruments is the company to beat in core application processors.
Here's a link to the story and the TOC for the report:
Expectations for the 2H 2011 tablet market.
A quick search shows another story here:
Apple iPad to account for 61% share of global tablet market in 2011, says a new report from Digitimes Research
Yeah, this is going to raise some eyebrows this weekend.
