Android was the big winner, with 27.8 million tablets shipped, for a 56.5% market share, a whopping increase of 247.5% compared to a year previous. iOS was impressive as well, with 19.5 million tablets shipped, and 39.6% market share, an increase of 65.3%.

Windows tablets still have minimal market share, at 1.6 million units and 3.3% market share, an increase of 700% compared to a year previous.
