Apple Inc. remained the world's dominant tablet vendor in the fourth quarter, but Samsung and Lenovo posted strong gains, according to IDC report released Wednesday. Apple sold 26 million iPads in the quarter, up 14% year-over-year, the report said. That represented 34% of the tablet market, down from Apple's 38% share in the year-earlier period. Samsung saw its shipments jump 86% to 14.5 million, giving the company 19% share, up from 13% in the year-earlier period. Amazon.com saw its Kindle sales slip about 2% year-over-year, though the company held on to the No. 3 spot with 6% market share, while Asus was at No. 4 with 4%. Lenovo was at No. 5 with only 3.4%. But Lenovo posted the strongest growth as shipments jumped 325% year-over-year. In a statement, IDC analyst Jitesh Ubrani cited Lenovo's "strength in emerging markets and its increased market share in adjoining markets such as PCs and smartphones" which makes it "well-positioned to see additional tablets gains in 2014."Copyright ...
