Worldwide media tablet shipments into sales channels fell by 28% on a sequential basis in the first calendar quarter of 2011 (1Q11) to 7.2 million units worldwide, according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Media Tablet and eReader Tracker. Looking forward, however, IDC raised its shipment forecast for 2011 to 53.5 million units from a previous projection of 50.4 million units.
For 1Q11, the seasonal trends typically found in more mature consumer electronics and computing categories had a notable impact on the burgeoning media tablet market, suggesting that demand for the category may not be quite as strong as recent media hype suggests. The eReader market (which IDC counts separately) experienced similar seasonality, undergoing a sequential decline in shipments to 3.3 million units as the post-holiday season proved to be challenging for that category. However, eReaders enjoyed 105% year-over-year growth as the devices continue to grow in overall popularity, particularly with the introduction of color devices, such as Barnes & Noble’s Color Nook. (Note: Media tablets have been shipping less than a full year and year over year growth comparisons are not yet available.)
Apple’s iPad and the recently introduced iPad 2 continue to dominate the media tablet market, as other vendors have had a more difficult time finding market acceptance for their products. But even Apple’s shipments for the quarter were well below expectations. Some supply-chain hiccups on screens as well as the pre-release announcement of the iPad 2 several weeks before its actual availability combined to have a noticeable impact on the company’s shipments for the quarter.

The news about Apple v Samsung is a familiar topic to all those interested in tech news at the moment, but what about other manufacturer’s that copy Apple’s designs without, what it seems, a care in the world?

Only hours ago we could report that Apple filed a suit for preliminary injunction against Samsung. Now we learn that Samsung has withdrawn it’s counter-lawsuit against Apple on June 30, according to Bloomberg, in an attempt “to streamline the legal proceedings”.
But Apple’s suit is still a fact, and so are the legal actions in South Korea, Japan, Germany, and the UK. The drop of the lawsuit in the US won’t affect other complaints by Samsung in other countries.
