Taiwan’s Asustek Computer slid by one spot to become the fourth-most-popular tablet
maker in Western Europe during the second quarter as vendor dynamics evolved, according to tech research firm International Data Corp (IDC).
In the April-June period, Asustek shipped 388,000 tablets to Western Europe to take a 5.2% market share, losing its third-place position to China’s Lenovo, which shipped 394,000 tablets during the quarter.
Asustek’s second-quarter tablet shipments in the region contracted strongly by 30.1% from a year earlier as the Taiwanese vendor prepared for the renewal of its product range, IDC said in an Aug. 14 report.
In the second quarter of last year, Asustek took a 7.3% share of the Western European tablet market and Lenovo accounted for a 5.2% share. [FULL STORY]
