The tablet market is the biggest growth area in tech today, so it's very closely followed by analysts. It's very highly emphasized by the biggest players in the space, as well. Traditionally, Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL ) was able to hold this market by a safe margin, with its iPad and iPad Mini allowing the company to hit multiple screen sizes and price points, but the competition in this area is rapidly ramping up. In this video, Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner gives investors a few numbers to show that, with Samsung catching up quickly, Apple should be concerned, but Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN ) and Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT ) should be positively terrified.
It's been a frustrating path for Microsoft investors, who've watched the company fail to capitalize on the incredible growth in mobile over the past decade.
