Digitimes Tablet Market

DigiTimes has released a report on the tablet market in General (not just Android), focusing on forecasts for the second quarter of the year, for which are planned sales of 21.6 million units.

If the predictions are confirmed by the facts, we will have an increase compared to the same period last year of 47.5%, which would compensate for the loss of 8.2% planned for Q1 2012(whose precise details haven’t yet been disclosed).

How is it then a rebound so sharp in the second quarter? The triggers would be mainly two partly easily intuitable: the release of theiPad 3 and the now obvious Nexus Tablet.

Apple will remain market Queen but Asus is likely to rise to third place, thanks to its 7-inch tablets produced in conjunction with Google; does not specify who should hold the second spot, but doing the math the name most likely is to Samsung.

The most important element, however, is another: the Nexus Tablet was so far credited for asummer release, probably from parts of Google I/O at the end of June, but according to the report by Digi Times its sales will be significant already in Q2 2012, which means that by June we should see it in the market.

Obviously this is not a confirmation in any way, especially since we don’t even know exactly how Google intends to distribute it, although the odds of its dissemination Play Store are very high, considering that the Nexus is recently available in this form.

Hard to do then forecast, but if the premises on features and price of the Nexus Tablet are confirmed, we hardly imagine them gathering dust on a shelf. Real or virtual.
