According to a report from China-based Analysis International -- as noted by "AppleInsider" (http://www.appleinsider.com) -- Apple dominated the Chinese tablet market during the three-month period ending July, capturing nearly three out of every four purchases despite not being able to sell the new iPad in the mainland until the final week of the quarter.
Chinese consumers combined to purchase 2.34 million tablets during the second quarter; that's a 63% increase from the previous year. Apple nabbed 72.66% of those sales, according to data from Analysis International. Extrapolating that data would bring Apple's total estimated unit sales in the region to roughly 1.7 million, or more than eight times greater than its closest competitor Lenovo, who came in a distant second with a 8.38% share, or approximately 196,000 units, notes "AppleInsider."
