"According to the latest data from IDC out today, Apple continued its lead of the worldwide tablet market in Q2 despite a decline in overall sales.

The report follows Apple’s fiscal Q3 earnings report last week where the company confirmed it sold just under 10 million iPads during the April to June quarter. That was a decline from the 11 million units it sold in the same quarter last year, but IDC shows Apple managed to slightly increase its market share as number two Samsung experienced an even larger decline in sales.
