In a recent report by 1010data Apple remained the #1 tablet brand sold online, however, Microsoft increased share year-over-year with increasing sales for its Surface Pro and Surface Book. 

The tablet market is still innovating, as can be seen with the category of  “laplets” – a crossover between a laptop and a tablet – which accounted for a 33% of sales for the tablet category for the quarter. The biggest gainer was Microsoft who captured an incremental +9% in Q1 share year-over-year. Amazon lost -4% in Q1 share year-over-year. Here are the top brands by dollar sales volume for Q1 2016.
