The latest report from IDC released preliminary data from its survey of worldwide tablet sales in the Q4 of 2012, which highlighted ASUS is now moving to the 4th place with 5.8% market share and 3.1 million units of shipment, beats Barnes & Noble, in the worldwide tablet shipment. The report also indicated ASUS has the biggest growth in tablet’s shipment, rose 402% year over year, where the firm says it was largely helped by the continued strong shipments of its Google-branded Nexus 7 tablet despite ASUS saw its share slip from 7.8% to 5.8% at Q4. Apple is still at the top spot of the chart, followed by Samsung and Amazon. Microsoft is missing from the list, as expected, despite it had a massive push for its Suface tablet in China at Q4 last year.
ASUS also launched the cousin of Nexus 7 called MeMO Pad during CES. It’s less powerful than Nexus 7 but $50 USD cheaper, which is powered by a single-core processor with a 7-inch 1024×600 display. But keep in mind, the smooth experience on tablet is no longer heavily rely on the hardware, thanks to the latest Android operating system.
