Windows based tablets are gaining more acceptability among tablet users across the global technology market.
Preliminary data released by Strategic Analytics about the global tablet market shows that Windows-based tablet reached an all-time high in the second quarter of 2015, capturing 9 per cent of tablet market share, up 4 points from the same period in 2014.
The report titled “Global Tablet OS Market Share: Q2 2015” shows that the total tablet shipments reached 50.8 million units in the second quarter of 2015, down 3 percent from 52.4 million in the same period in 2014.
Eric Smith, Tablet & Touchscreen Strategies Senior Analyst says that “Windows share continues to improve as more models become available from traditional PC vendors, White Label vendors, and Microsoft itself though a healthy Surface lineup and distribution expansion. The key going forward will be if the coming wave of 2-in-1 Detachable Tablets is a hit with consumers or if they go the way of the Netbook—we remain cautiously optimistic on this point.”
