Here’s another way to look at the ‘disappointing’ 16 million iPads sold in the first quarter of 2014. In the latest Canalys report on the PC market in Q1 of this year, Apple comes out as the Number 1 vendor again – and the iPad is by far and away the biggest factor in earning that position.
Apple’s total number of PC + tablet sales for the quarter was 20.4 million – with the iPad’s 16.4 million accounting for a whopping 80% of the total.
Oh, and the second place PC maker is Lenovo. Lenovo’s total number of PCs and tablets sold (15 million) doesn’t match the iPad sales number.
