Almost one million iPad users in SA

By the end of this year, a million tablets may have been sold in South Africa.

Total sales up to the end of September, well before the arrival of either Windows 8 or the iPad mini and iPad with Retina Display, had reached 788 000. 

This number includes around 20 000 'grey market' iPads sold during 2010, but the rest represents sales since January 2011.

Apple is by far the largest player in the tablet market, with a 50% market share. Samsung comes in a distant second with 33%, and Huawei an even more distant 7.5%. The rest of the market barely makes up 10% tablet share.

The estimated number of tablets sold in South Africa is based on interviews with retailers, distributors, and marketing representatives of major brands. – Gadget.co.za
