In the second quarter the number of tablets sold decreased by 7.0 percent compared to the previous year. Compared to the first quarter, the number of tablets sold decreased by 3.9 percent to 44.7 million – according to the quarterly research of the American International Data Corporation (IDC).


Tablet sales have been erratic over the past several quarters amid tougher competition and market saturation. Shipments of Apple's tablets, including the larger-screen iPad and the iPad Mini, have declined 26 percent compared to the second quarter of 2013, said Jean Philippe Bouchard, research director of tablets at IDC. And many analysts have been left to wonder whether the days of tablet growth are over. (MTI)
