Top 5 Global Tablet Vendors for Q1 2017

1. Apple - 8.9 million units shipped | 24.6% | -13%
2. Samsung - 6.0 million units shipped | 16.5% | -1.1%
3. Huawei - 2.7 million units shipped | 7.4% | +31.7%
4. Amazon - 2.2 million units shipped | 6.0% | -1.8%
5. Lenovo - 2.1 million units shipped | 5.7% | -3.8%

"A long-term threat to the overall PC market lies in how the market ultimately settles on the detachable versus convertible debate," said Linn Huang, research director, Devices & Displays at IDC. "To date, detachable shipments have dwarfed those of convertibles, but growth of the former has slowed a bit. In IDC's 2017 U.S. Consumer PCD Survey, fielded over the previous two months, detachable owners held slightly more favorable attitudes towards their detachables than convertible owners did for their convertibles. However, owners of both were far more likely to recommend a convertible over a detachable."
