After years of lack of innovation said its word, Apple is no longer the once invincible company, slowly but surely is losing market share for Android-based products. Take for example the range of iPad tablet, which came to have a smaller market share than Android tablets.
Powered by names like Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire, Android tablets range has grown rapidly in popularity from taking full advantage of price/performance ratio superior to Apple and weaknesses of chaotic iOS updates and without a thorough test of new introduced facilities.
Thus, while the market share of the tablet with Apple iOS system collapsed in the range Q2-2012 – Q2 2013 from 47.2% to 28%, Android-based tablets have come to represent 67% of global supplies. In numbers, Apple shipped 14.6 million tablets in the Q2 of 2013, while companies producing Android-based tablets have shipped 34.6 million units in the same time period.
Taken together, the tablet market grew by 43% last year, far less than the increase of 116% measured with a year earlier. The blame is on the one hand reduced of purchasing power caused by the global economic slowdown, or maturing market already come to be saturated with too many models of tablets that cannot be sold as fast as before. Overall, at the end of Q2 2013 the tablet market shipped 51.7 million devices, compared to 36.1 million in Q2 2012.
While Android tablets success is mainly attributed to various collective hardware partners, which had a stable income in the last year, the observed decrease in the Apple camp seems to be mainly caused by excessive period of time since the launch of the first iPad tablets with Retina display, have not been enough new products launched. Arrived quite late, iPad Mini failed to compensate for declining sales recorded of full-size iPad.
Mediatek is the first developer of a truly octa-core processor, which offers improved performance and extremely important, more efficient energy consumption.
The new processor has eight cores that can work individually per application or task. Given this detail, we can say that is the first truly octa-core processor, unlike Samsung processor – called all octa-core – the four cores can enable each of the eight.
Thus, for some applications, octa-core processor Samsung dedicate sometimes more power than is required to run an application, and this process means wasted battery.
Octa-core processor from MediaTek stands the ability to assign tasks to accomplish each individual and a core to provide superior 3D effects, which translates into getting a very good graphics, especially relevant gaming experience.
Last but not least, the new process has an efficiency of video playback function, which reduces battery consumption by up to 18% compared to other quad-core processors. MediaTek has worked hard on this process and relies on dedicated energy efficiency and power per task.
