According to IDC, Apple now has only 50% of the tablet market

A few days ago when Apple made the official announcement of their new tablet iPad Mini, Apple CEO Tim Cook, showed a chart with figures of tablet market according to web traffic, without specifying the source of information.

Equally as Tim Mainelli, IDC Research Director,
"We believe that a significant percentage of consumers interested in buying an Apple tablet missed the third quarter pending the announcement of the new iPad Mini.

Another report from the firm Net Market Share, says that Apple owns 59. 9% vs. 27% of Android, although in this case the numbers of figures including Apple iPhone and iPad.
