The number of tablets sold each month in the United States continues an upward trend, particularly in the Android category. comScore MobiLens conducted a three-month-average study in late 2012 and found that while Apple iOS tablet sales are increasing slightly, the Android market is driving the growth of more than 45,000 units per month. Tablets with other operating systems have been introduced but only control a tiny slice of the market, including HP, Windows and Blackberry.
The data set is a part of a collection of 500 revenue and usership trends in mobile, social, Internet, tablet, video and other digital categories, published in the 200-page Global Digital Media Trendbook 2013. GDMT, in its eight year, is to be published by World Newsmedia Network, a not-for-profit media research company, in September 2013.
