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.

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.

iPad dominance grows: Apple could be “default” choice amid tablet gush

Apple's iPad continues to dominate the tablet market despite the best efforts of the Android competition, new research suggests, with record-setting sales of the iOS slate outshining even Samsung's buoyant numbers. Although mature markets are showing signs of iPad saturation, developing markets are "clearly more than making up the difference" research firm IDC claims, with its 68.2-percent marketshare in Q2 2012 more than seven times that of Samsung.

Apple coughs up $2.6m to block Samsung tablet sales

Apple coughs up $2.6m to block Samsung tablet sales

Apple has opened its purse and swiftly paid the $2.6m bond required to block sales of Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the US, after a court granted a preliminary injunction against the Android slate. The bond - a drop in the ocean given Apple's current financial status - will be subject to forfeit to Samsung should the injunction be subsequently deemed improper. However, Samsung has requested that the block on sales be held off until its appeal can be heard.

Apple testing Nexus Tablet competitor in iPad mini

Apple testing Nexus Tablet competitor in iPad mini

This week there's been a bit of speculation surrounding the miniature, perhaps half-sized tablet Apple may or may not be working on behind the scenes. Earlier this week we heard Daring Fireball's John Gruber mention that a 7.85-inch model of the Apple tablet is currently in testing labs, though whether or not it would actually be considered for release seemed a different matter entirely. Now that Google Nexus Tablet rumors have caught fire again, is it time for Apple to get serious about tackling the mid-sized market?

ViewSonic follows Apple’s lead with MWC phones & tablets

ViewSonic has outed its Mobile World Congress line-up of smartphones and tablets, and with the Android-powered ViewPhone 4s running a 3.5-inch 960 x 640 display it's clear the iPhone 4S is the company's key target. The ViewPhone 4s matches Apple's smartphone with a 326ppi IPS display, but squeezes in twin SIMs and a copy of Ice Cream Sandwich, along with a 5-megapixel camera and a front-facing VGA webcam. It's not the only new ViewSonic device, though; read on for more.

Apple’s 8-inch iPad could form iOS tablet triptych

Apple’s 8-inch iPad could form iOS tablet triptych

Reignited rumors of a second, smaller Apple iPad have flourished, with signs pointing to not one but two new models in 2012 as the Cupertino company branches out into a twin-tablet strategy. Despite Steve Jobs' protestations to the contrary, back in 2010, insiders claim Apple has long maintained plans for a "tweener" tablet of its own; in fact, while twin-tier pricing for Apple's iPad has already been tipped for this year, with talk that the company might keep the current iPad 2 on as a budget model alongside March's new iPad 2S/3, it seems Apple's supply-chain may finally be up to the challenge of slotting in a new model.

Apple loses Dutch Samsung tablet ban bid

Apple loses Dutch Samsung tablet ban bid

Apple's bid to have sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 blocked in the Netherlands has failed today, with a Dutch appeals court dismissing Apple's claims of IP infringement by the Android tablet. The ruling - released in Dutch - found that while Apple's tablet design patent 000181607 is still valid, prior art including HP Compaq's tc1000 and the 1994 Knight Ridder concept meant the Cupertino company's design rights are very narrow.
