Apple top of the tablet totem pole through 2015

Android to topple iPad the following year

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Android tablets won't outsell the iPad until 2016, one market watcher has claimed.

Informa's forecast for tablet sales in 2015 has Apple shipping 90m tablets, just ahead of combined sales from Motorola, Samsung, Acer, Asus, Toshiba et al of 87m units.

By the following year, Android unit shipments will have surpassed Apple's. But, as we've noted before, that will still leave Apple the dominant tablet hardware manufacturer, by a good margin.

Informa builds the increased availability of low-cost Android fondleslabs into its forecast. As we saw earlier today, price is a key factor for punters looking for an alternative to Apple's product.

Just under 231m tablets will be sold in 2015, the researcher reckons.

That leaves 54m machines running an operating system that isn't iOS or Android. Quite a few will run QNX - in other words, they'll be RIM BlackBerry PlayBook tablets. But many, many more will be Windows 8 machines.

Don't forget: Windows-based tablets outsold PlayBooks in Q2 this year. ®
