None of the non-iPad tablets has more than a 5% share

There is no tablet in the Android tablets list which can be declared to have taken the majority, although Apple's share in the tablet market has been reduced

Although the iPad's share has been decreasing gradually in the tablet market, no Android tablet has been able to take the credit of being called  the largest selling tablet. The Kindle Fire had sold a lot of units since its release in the holiday season of 2011; however it is not capable of managing to give breakthrough, which will cause a significant pressure on the iPad. 

According to a report from Forrester Research, Apple’s devices still holds a 73 percent share in the tablet market. But as Apple has invented the so called tablet market, we can also say that it has gradually reduced from a 100 percent share in the market. 

It has also been cleared by Forrester that Samsung was the leading manufacturer among the non-Apple Android tablets, but combining the entire group of Android tablets it still holds only 5 percent of the market share. 

Other than Samsung, Motorola holds 4 percent and Acer makes it to 3 percent share. It has also been reported that Kindle Fire sold only a fewer tablets than the Samsung but it seems to have made that figure in just a short period of time. 

The market in the future is expected to show a lot of fluctuations especially because of the Kindle Fire and the other low cost Android tablets. These tablets may push the market further to some new heights. Apple with their new tablet is also expecting to gain some more shares towards their side.
