Acer: iPad marketshare to drop to 20-30 percent

Posted on Tuesday, August 24 2010 @ 09:24:23 CEST by

Acer chairman JT Wang predicts Apple will see major marketshare shares losses in the tablet market once more players jump into this fast-growing segment:
As for the tablet market itself, Wang believes that Apple's closed camp operation will ultimately bow to other joint forces once the market matures, thus lowering the iPad's current near-100 percent share to somewhere between 20 and 30 percent. Hell, the man even suggested this could be an over-estimation, and referred to the Mac's minuscule 5 percent global share over the last few years. And you know what? He might be right. That doesn't mean that the iPad's days are numbered though since Apple's never been interested in taking part in the "race to the bottom." Apple measures success by profits, not market share -- even a small percentage of high-margin laptop and smartphone sales has proven to be a very good thing for Apple's bottom line.
