Android Dominates the Tablet Market in 2013 Q2 with 67 Percent Share of Global Tablet Shipments. Speed, time and money all come together. With its ease of use and early adoption growth the Mobile apps impact much greater than the Internet. Android had more than 79 percent of the smartphone market in the second quarter of 2013, while iOS fell to 13 percent, according to IDC -- Apple still dominates the enterprise. According to a June 2013 activation report from mobile software maker Good Technology, 75 percent of the mobile activations at Good's Fortune 500 clients were for iOS devices.


With the right Android enterprise social collaboration platforms we should also look to be just as successful with the actual team collaborations. Teamwork effectiveness is critical in any organization which should be applied to platform collaborations. At the enterprise level today, people will move towards collaboration solutions that are simple to use and immediately gratifying. BYOD has been making its way into further saturation in the Android enterprise market.

According to Strategy Analytics, global tablet shipments reached 51.7 million units in the second quarter of 2013. Android secured a robust 67 percent global share, while Apple iOS declined further to 28 percent. Windows also fell back but secured a 4.5 percent global share. Mobile Ready in business serves as very useful tools for many organizations. Android and apps have still yet to mature but have business value. Tablets are powerful as corporate executives can stay up to date on corporate data for all departments and departments that may not be "too tech."

Peter King, Director of Tablets at Strategy Analytics, said, "Global Branded Tablet shipments reached 36.2 million units in Q2 2013, up 47 percent from 24.6 million in Q2 2012. The branded Tablet market had a rest period as very few new products came to market during the quarter. When we add in White-Box Tablets, shipments reached 51.7 million units, up 43 percent from 36.1 million in Q2 2012. Android is now making steady progress due to hardware partners like Samsung, Amazon, Google and White-Box tablets which, despite the fact that branded OEMs are lowering price-points and putting pressure on the White-Box manufacturers, are still performing well," King added.
