This year, iPads took 38 percent of the market and the other 56 percent went to Google, Samsung and Tesco.
This is the first year that Apple has not dominated the tablet market with many competitors taking the lead.
Google Android tablets took the lead due to their affordability and similar functions to the iPad. In fact, Android tablets, powered by Google took 56 percent of sales mainly due to the cheaper prices.
Tesco also surprised the market this year, selling 300,000 of their tablets in the first two months. The 7 inch Android tablet was an instant hit and the company struggled to keep stock on the shelves.
Tablet sales were up this year from previous years and was one of the most popular Christmas gifts this year in the USA.
