EE Times reports TI's OMAP processor dominated the non-iPad tablet market in 2011 with a marketshare of 35 percent, closely followed by NVIDIA's Tegra at 34 percent.
TI’s Omap chips captured 35 percent of the non-iPad tablet market buoyed by design wins in the Amazon Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble Nook. Nvidia’s Tegra came in a close second at 34 percent claiming sockets in tablets from Acer, Asus, LG, Motorola, Samsung, Sony, Toshiba and others.
Qualcomm and Intel, giants in smartphones and PCs respectively, “missed the boat” in tablets in 2011, said Sravan Kundojjala, a senior analyst for handset component technologies at Strategy Analytics in a press statement.
Likewise apps processor vendors Broadcom, ST-Ericsson, MediaTek, Marvell and Renesas “need to improve their tablet market focus in 2012 as these companies haven’t scored significant tablet design-wins so far,” he said.
