android marketshare is increasingThe Ipad has seen massive growth since its launch in April 2010. Wow, it seems just like yesterday. To be honest, its done really well, bearing in mind most critics had written off its popularity or if consumers were willing to pay the price.

However, its dominate position is under pressure falling from a market share of the tablet market of 96% to 67%.

Even though there’s been an increase in shipments by a whopping 20% in the past three months, it’s share of the global tablet market has declined due to growing competition from other tablet makers (including Android slates).

“It is clear that the iPad is experiencing slowing growth,” observed IDC analyst Tom Mainelli in a research note today.

If you’re a small business owner and looking to produce apps for the Ipad, it may be worth producing a second app for android powered tablets in addition. If these stats are anything to go by, Apple Ipad’s dominance is declining at a considerable rate, which means you need to focus your efforts on the current and rising stars in this marketplace.

If you need an app developing, don’t forget, XenMedia Solutions can help you get your idea off the ground for both Ipad devices and Android enabled devices.
