Samsung has launched a number of tablets, targeting different price points. Several reports have shown that Samsung is slowly gaining market share in the tablet market, and the research from ABI Research, a market research firm, shows a similar result. According to their report, Samsung is gaining on Apple when it comes to tablets, and managed to ship over 13 million units in the first quarter of 2014, a positive change of 10.8 percent compared to last quarter.

“Despite questions remaining about data disclosure in 2010 and 2011, Samsung’s release of tablet sales data this past quarter is a good sign for the mobile computing market,” says senior practice director Jeff Orr.“Whether due to its confidence in the economy, its own business, or a combination of reasons, Samsung continues to demonstrate tablet growth as its 2013 retail push in North America and Western Europe pays off.”

The report says Apple and Samsung continue to dominate the tablet market, with 71 percent market share of the 41.3 million branded tablets in the first calendar quarter of 2014. As far as the operating systems are concerned, Android leads the market with 56.3 percent, while iOS resides at 31.6 percent. It seems the future is bright for Samsung. The company is also rumored to be working on a new tablet dubbed as the Galaxy Tab S, which is expected to see daylight in the coming weeks.
