The iPad still has 82% of the tablet market despite growing competition, according to the Nielsen research group (http://www.nielsen.com).
Samsung, Dell and Motorola have 4%, 3% and 2%, respectively. Nielsen's report also showed that:
° Around half of all tablet owners reported being the only ones in their household using their particular tablet, while 43% said they shared the tablet with others. Eight percent said that while they own a tablet used by other household members, they do not use it themselves.
° When asked whether they used other connected devices more often or less often since purchasing a tablet, 35% of tablet owners who also owned a desktop computer reported using their desktop less often or not at all, while 32% of those who also owned laptops, said they used their laptop less often or never since acquiring a tablet.
° Twenty-seven percent of those who also own eReaders said they use their eReader less often or not at all – the same percentage as those who also own portable media players.
° One-in-four tablet owners who own portable games consoles are using those devices less often, if at all, since purchasing a tablet.
