Android Makes Gains in Tablet Market in Q3

Apple saw a dent in sales as customers awaited the release of the iPad Mini


Apple's tablet market share took a hit as consumers "sat out" the third quarter in anticipation of the iPad Mini, analyst firm IDC said. Android tablets made gains as a result.

After a strong second quarter, Apple's unit shipment growth slowed in both consumer and commercial (including education) markets, according to an IDC report published Monday.
