AMD expects Windows-powered tablets to have 20% share by 2017

Posted on Thursday, June 07 2012 @ 18:26:12 CEST by

AMD CEO Rory Read predicts that five years from now, Windows-powered tablets have a shot of taking up 20 percent of the global tablet market, up from 2-3 percent today.
That would be up from 2-3% today, Read says. Of course, today's Windows tablets run Windows 7 and aren't really intended as iPad competitors; rather, they tend to be chunky, heavy, business-oriented devices.

Fox Business points out that, this year, market research firm IHS iSuppli expects the iPad to hold about 61% of the market, with Android-based offerings snatching almost all of the remainder—38%. I guess that only leaves about 1% for other platforms, which kind of flies in the face of Read's comment, but the fact remains: iOS and Android have the market almost all to themselves. It would certainly be nice to have a third, major competitor vying for supremacy.
