Apple Tablet coming with “Cocktail” interactive album extras?

Apple's internet tablet, aka the Apple Media Pad, has racked up another mainstream press mention over the weekend, with the Financial Times reporting that the "up to 10-inch" device will arrive in time for the holidays and potentially be launched alongside a new interactive media system that record companies hope will drive digital album sales.  Codenamed "Cocktail" according to those familiar with the project, the system has seen Apple partner with EMI, Sony Music, Warner Music and Universal Music Group, to develop a package of interactive booklet, sleeve and other information.

IDC tablet shipment numbers show high growth for all but Apple

IDC has released its third-quarter numbers on the tablet industry, and in them we see good news for four of the top five tablet vendors, with all but Apple seeing growth -- in a couple cases, substantial growth -- year-on-year. For Samsung in particular, the market share numbers compared to the same quarter last year rose by 8-percent, taking the Korean company above the 20-percent mark.

Does Apple drive the tablet market, or ASUS?

Does Apple drive the tablet market, or ASUS?

This afternoon the folks at the IDC released quarterly worldwide shipment numbers for tablets, suggesting as they did so that a slump in the market this quarter may be due to Apple's lack of a new iPad. And we got to thinking: it's easy to relate the growth of the tablet industry over the past several years to the iPad - but what can we see if we pinpoint the releases of individual tablets from each of the other top two tablet-making companies to their quarters? Is it the iPad that's driving this growth, or the release of excellent tablet packages by non-Apple companies?

Tablets and Android drive Post-PC world (but ignore Apple’s ecosystem at your peril)

Tablets and Android drive Post-PC world (but ignore Apple’s ecosystem at your peril)

The post-PC era continues to see tablets and smartphones drive overall growth, researchers claim, with traditional PC shipments predicted to decline more than 10-percent this year. 2013 sales of computing hardware - including tablets, smartphones, and PCs - are expected to grow 5.9-percent year on year in 2013, Gartner calculates, but that will be predominantly down to slates, it's argued. In fact, compared to 2012, tablet sales are expected to jump almost 68-percent.

Apple predicted to lose tablet market share to Android, Windows over the next 4 years

Apple’s iPad line, including the new iPad mini, has become the most successful series of tablets ever built, claiming over half the tablet market share. However, Android is slowly chipping away at that figure, and is gaining tablet market share while Apple is slowly losing it. It's predicted that Apple will lose a few percentage points, while both Android and Windows will gain a few.

Apple loses Samsung tablet appeal: Must pay for apology adverts

Apple loses Samsung tablet appeal: Must pay for apology adverts

A London High Court judge ruled back in July that Samsung hadn't copied the Apple iPad with its Galaxy Tab 10. As you might expect, that really didn't set well with Apple who remained convinced that Samsung was slavishly copying everything it produced. Apple appealed the court ruling and as of this week, Apple has lost that appeal with the judge again ruling that Samsung didn't copy the iPad.

Apple nets 72% of Chinese tablet market during Q2 2012

Apple nets 72% of Chinese tablet market during Q2 2012

Apple might be getting some stiff competition here in the United States, but in China, the company may as well be the only one playing the game. Digitimes reports that 2.34 million tablets were sold in China during quarter 2 (which ended in July), and of those, around 1.7 million sales were iPads. That leaves Apple with a mind-numbing 72.66% of the market share, so just let that sink in for a moment.
