IDC says. No wonder AAPL price is declining after peaking at $704. GOOG Nexus and Amazon Kindle Fire lines are eating away Ipad dominance. A lot of consumers are not convince to spend $329 to buy Ipad Mini when you can buy at less than $200 a better spec'ed Nexus and Kindle Fire HD.
This was expected and it is NOTHING NEW. Few months ago there was NO competition in this area.. but IPAD is still growing sales nicely as the public and institutions are buying tablets instead of computers. The same with IOS vs Android .... even if Android has more users the market keeps growing so Apple's share may be growing slower but Apple has nice growth for the foreseeable future. And this is what counts.
