Android has overtaken the iPad in terms of sales of devices and $$ generated. ABI research did a huge in depth study of the tablet market share. There are more android tablets on the market than iPads now. It seems a very logical next step for Shopify.


A shift in leadership is now upon the tablet mobile computing market. At the year’s mid-point, market intelligence firm ABI Research identified a trio of events signaling Apple’s iPad family of products has passed the baton to the Android ecosystem. During the second quarter of 2016, the number of Android-powered tablets surpassed iOS-based slates for the first time, tablet-related hardware revenues reached parity, and perhaps most important, the average selling price (ASP) of iPad is rapidly approaching the market average.

Overall shipments in the quarter dropped 17% sequentially while growing 23% year-over-year for the same quarterly period. “Smaller 7-inch class tablets are finally the majority of shipments, ” says senior practice director Jeff Orr. “The 7.9-inch iPad mini represented about 60% of total iPad shipments and 49% of iPad-related device revenues in the quarter.” Tablet shipments in the second quarter of 2016 achieved revenues of $12.7 billion. For the first time, iPad represented only 50% of worldwide end-user revenues. Apple split the market with all other branded vendors at $6.3 billion in the quarter.
