Apple iPad 2 has changed the concept of tablets and emerged as a key pillar for Apple success. Since last year when original iPad was launched and followed by iPad 2 there is no major competitor and even Android tablet as whole can not make Apple try thinking of something new. Apple Sales figures after iPad launch rose from 65.7 percent to 68.3 percent globally whereas Android lowered from 34.0 percent to 26.8 percent. There are even few which had left this as a bad job especially HP who dumped HP TouchPad as well as WebOS.
It all depicts that Apple is currently at very comfortable position and does not require to rush. J.P. Morgan analyst Mark Moskowitz says,
Our latest research continues to indicate that there is no such device slated for production this year. In our view, Apple should be in no rush. The other tablet entrants have stumbled so far, and that trend-line could persist deep into 2012.
Asymco carried out the sales trend for all major smartphone brands which clearly depicts Apple’s success story.
In such congenial environments Apple is least bothered about the launch of next generation iPad a.k.a iPad 3. Although Apple is currently leading the carts but this gap will continuously narrow down and one day we will see Android as a tough competitor. Many of the analyst think that Apple is hindering the smartphone development progress by claiming copyright infringement lawsuits and hate Apple stopping innovation.
