According to Sravan Kundojjala, Senior Analyst, "NVIDIA led the non-iPad tablet market with 27 percent revenue share in 2012. NVIDIA scored high-profile design-wins such as the Google Nexus 7 and Microsoft Surface RT, which fueled 83 percent year-on-year growth in its tablet applications processor shipments in 2012. Strategy Analytics states that NVIDIA is well-positioned to address the high-performance tablet market with its new Tegra 4 chip."
According to Stuart Robinson, Director of the Strategy Analytics Handset Component Technologies service, "Strategy Analytics believes that Intel and Qualcomm missed the tablet boat in 2012. We estimate that Qualcomm and Intel together captured less than 5 percent volume share in the tablet applications processor market in 2012. Strategy Analytics states that Intel and Qualcomm's tablet success hinges on Microsoft' Windows tablet operating system's take off."
