Apple now number 3 in Mobile Market including iPads

In what we don’t really consider much of a surprise at all (for now), IDC’s June survey shows Apple has become the seventh largest mobile player in the global mobile marketplace – not including the iPad. But if the iPad were to be included in this survey, Apple would be No. 3 due to the 3.27million iPad units that were sold. Deutsche Bank’s Chris Whitmore states:

Our retail checks suggest this share shift continues in July, where the iPad is directly cannibalizing demand for other vendors’ notebook products, remarkably, Apple’s traditional MacBook business posted accelerated unit growth on a Y/Y basis in 2Q despite the launch of the iPad while every other Top 5 vendor slowed. Apple’s iPad ramped to an $8B+ annual revenue run rate in just 1 quarter. While we wait for competitive responses to the iPad (from HP, Asus, Acer, etc), we expect strong iPad uptake to extend globally as it is launched in additional countries / channels, supporting further share gains for Apple in the broader ‘converged mobility’ market.”
