Strategy Analytics: Android beats iOS in Q2 tablet shipments, Windows gains ground

All in all, global tablet shipments were up for Q2, according to new numbers released by analyst firm Strategy Analytics. Factoring in white-box units, the market saw 51.7 million tablets shipped in that time period — that’s up 43-percent compared to the same time last year. A lot of that good news can be chalked up to Android’s success. The OS saw a healthy bump from 18.5- to 34.6 million units shipped, a number that has Google’s mobile operating system holding 67-percent of the market. The news is a little less cheery on Apple’s side of the OS wars, with shipments dipping from 17- to 14.6 million units, decreasing its marketshare to 28.3-percent, according to the firm. Microsoft, not surprisingly, saw a healthy increase in shipments from last year — though it’s still got a ways to go, calling around 4.5-percent of the market its own.
