A new tipping point in the world of tablets: today the analysts at Gartner have released their tablet sales numbers for 2013, and Android has topped the list for the most popular platform for the first time, outselling Appleā€™s range of iPad tablets nearly twofold. Of the 195 million tablets sold in 2013, Android took nearly 62% of sales on 121 million tablets, while Apple sold 70 million iPad tablets for a 36% share.

In comparison, last year, Apple led the tablet category with nearly 53% of sales on 61 million units, compared to Android at nearly 46% with 53 million tablets sold.

This was always inevitable. Apple won't mind though - they're still raking in the profits.

Well, from 61 Millions last year, to 70 Millions this year ? Does that look like an halted growth for Apple ?

In a market which routinely provides triple digit annual growth figures, this is a much bigger reason to worry than the increased market share of Android.
