Apple’s iPad (and the iPad 2 follow-up) has enjoyed a relatively solid tablet market share which has been continuously shrinking from almost a monopoly situation to something which is closer to competition.

According to a recent Strategy Analytics research there were a total of 26.8 million tablet units sold in the fourth quarter of 2011, up from 10.7 million in 2010. Apple’s iOS-powered tablets lost 10% market share from 68% in 2010 to 58% in 2011 while Google’s Android-powered tablets managed to grow from 29% in 2010 to 39% last year.

The general tablet market grew by 260& in 2011 to reach 66.9 million units sold; the general trend is a solid one in which users often prefer a tablet in the detriment of netbooks or even notebooks.
