Lack of a New iPad is Dragging Down Global Tablet Sales

tablet sales IDC q2
Tablet sales have been on a tear over the past year but demand have dropped off significantly this past quarter. IDC, in its latest tablet tracker report, has seen a sequential quarter over quarter shipping decline of -9.7%. This is the first decline of tablet sales IDC has seen and one of the major contributors could be prospective buyers delaying their purchases in the hopes that Apple might soon launch the new iPad 5 or iPad mini 2.

Apple’s iPad sales declined from 19.5 million in the Q1 to 14.6 million units in the second quarter of this year. The decline is largely attributed to the lack of a new iPad in Q2 but growing pressure from popular Android tablets has also begun to eat into Apple’s dominant marketshare. Global tablet shipments for the past quarter hit 45.1 million units which was a 59.6% increase compared to a year ago quarter when tablet sales hit 28.3 million devices.

XCOM Shows Users are Willing to Pay Premium Prices for iOS Games

XCOM Main

All of us love a good deal and that’s reflected in the pricing trends for iPhone and iPad apps.  We’ve seen developers shift from paid apps to ‘freemium’ apps that cost nothing up front but then nickel and dime you for in-app purchases of virtual goods and new levels.  While this trend has proven profitable for many developers, 2K Games thought it would try something a little different when it released XCOM: Enemy Unknown at a rather steep price of $19.99.

When XCOM was first released many commenters said the developers were out of touch and the app was doomed to failure due to its ‘ridiculously high’ price tag.  Well guess what, Take Two Interactive’s CEO says the game has been a resounding success proving all the naysayers wrong.
