Samsung’s family of Galaxy Tabs take the second spot and sits at only 15.4% of the market, down from 23.8% in December. Following at quite a bit of distance away is the Motorola Xoom and the ASUS Transformer with a score of 7 and 6.3% respectively, while the Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet K1 holds the bottom spot at only 1% of the market.
