As the world’s leading PC company, Apple Inc. has reached another milestone. The company is known for their innovations and sleek and sexy designs.
The market actually dropped by 0.1 percent if we take out the iPad out of the equation. The research firm is the first organization that included the latter in their tally of computer sales.
They said that Apple sold 20.6 million units of iPad in the fourth quarter of 2011. This is up by 17.01 percent.
HP on the other hand sold 15.3 million units, growing by 12.7 percent.
Tim Coulling of Canalys said, “Currently, HP is pursuing a Windows strategy for it pad portfolio, producing enterprise-focused products, such as the recently launched Slate 2, until the launch of Windows 8.
However, questions remain over Microsoft’s entry into the consumer pad space. While early demonstrations of the Windows 8 operating system seem promising, Microsoft must focus its efforts on creating an intuitive user experience that is far less resource intensive.”
