Samsung takes the top spot

Research firm IDC has published its latest report called the Worldwide Quarterly Smart Connected Device Tracker for Q4 2012. This report looks at the overall global smartphone, tablet, and PC market. The report shows a significant increase in the number of units shipped for Q4 2012 compared to the previous year.

IDC reports that vendors shipped 367.7 million desktop PCs, portable PCs, tablets, and smartphones in Q4 2012. That represents an increase of 28.3% from the previous year. When you look at the categories individually both desktop PCs and portable PCs declined during the quarter by -4.1% and -3.4% respectively. Overall shipments in the Smart Connected Devices market totaled over 1.2 billion units for all of 2012.


The largest growth came from the tablet market with 78.4% year-over-year growth compared to 2011. The smartphone market grew 46.1% and accounted for 60.1% of all smart connected devices shipped in 2012. Samsung took the number one position in the smart connected device market in 2012 with a little more than 20% of the market share across all four device categories.

IDC reports that Samsung shipped 250 million PCs, tablets, and smartphones during 2012 for an increase of 119.3% compared to 2011. The bulk of this growth was driven by Samsung's smartphones such as the Galaxy S III. Apple found itself in second place buoyed by strong demand for its iPad and iPhone products.

Rounding out the top five for the Smart Connected Devices market in 2012 was Lenovo at number three, HP at number four, and Dell at number five.
