HTC Profits Take A Dive: Q1 Is The Lowest-Profit Quarter On Record Following One Delay

There is no joy in Taoyuan this morning, as HTC's first quarter financial results have become public.

Android-Powered Tablets Take 34% Of The Global Market In Q1

When it comes to tablets, the iPad has dominated the market since it first became available back in early 2010. However, Android has been making slow strides towards the top, taking bigger bites out of iPad sales every quarter, and the figures just announced by IDC speak no differently.

In the first quarter of 2011, Android accounted for 34% of global tablet sales, which is up 8.2% from the previous quarter. It's not all good, though, as the tablet market as a whole dropped by 28% during Q1. However, IDC sees this as merely a hiccup in terms of sales and expects the market to continue rising, estimating that the global tablet market will hit 53.5 million units this year.

NPD: 28% Of Smartphones Sold In Q1 2010 Were Android

Finally, some empirical evidence that illustrates what we've known for some time now: Android is growing like gangbusters. In fact, 28% of smartphones sold in Q1 2010 were Android, compared to 21% for iOS. RIM still holds the top spot with 36%, but that's a drop of roughly 12% in the past year - while iOS has fallen approximately 10% itself. In the same period, Android increased over 20%.

In fact, it seems like Android grew at the expense of just about everyone else - excluding a minor 1-2% increase in "other". And as Android continues to expand across the line of devices - from smartphones to ultra-cheap featurephones - it's likely that the overall number of Android devices will continue to grow.
