Samsung share dropped from 84.7% to 46% : Now between the two reports there is a difference of 4 months. The latest report includes an extra month of October in 2010 and an extra quarter in 2011. Samsung sold 71995 tablets in the period of Nov 2010 to March 2011. And it sold 72680 tablets in the period of October 2010 to June 2011. Which means in 4 months – October 2010 and between April 2011-June 2011, Samsung sold just 685 tablets. It is even more surprising because Samsung started its ad campaign for its Galaxy Tabs in this quarter.
Blackberry didn’t figure in the first study. Whatever sales it made has to be come from the quarter of Apr 2011 to June 2011. A total of 33180 Blackberry Playbook’s were sold in this period. It’s a good number, but when compared with iPad sales, Playbook numbers are unsurprisingly high.
Apple sold 5015 iPads in the period of Nov 2010 to March 2011. Assuming there are no sales in October 2010, Apple sold 23425 tablets in the period of April 2011 to June 2011, the same period in which Blackberry sold 33180 Playbooks.
If we overlap the numbers from the both the reports, even if Olive didn’t sell one Olivepad in the last quarter, it will still have 4.4% market share based on its sales in Nov 2010 to March 2011.
