Motion Computing leading the Slate Tablet PC market

Motion Computing has published a press release announcing their price decreases and the fact that their sales grew 32% in 2005.  An interesting figure they quote from IDC is that slate tablet pcs represent 24% of total tablet pc sales. Doing the fuzzy math, that tells me Motion Computing represents roughly 8.4% of the total Tablet PC market.


I wonder how much of that 32% were new acquisitions vs upgrades from older models? That would be interesting to know.

According to a report from International Data Corporation (IDC) issued in April, Motion Computing® is leading the industry in slate tablet PC sales and grew 32% in 2005.

“Slate tablets accounted for 24% of all tablet shipments in 2005, and Motion Computing maintained a dominant position with 35% of that market share in the US,” said David Daoud, IDC. “Immediate growth opportunities for slates exist in healthcare, field sales and service – markets that rely on accurate, mobile data collection to boost productivity and increase security.”
