Tablet PCs take less than 1% of notebook market

Fewer than 92,000 Tablet PCs shipped in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) from the platform’s 7 November 2002 launch to the end of September 2003. That’s fewer machines than the number of PDAs sold in Q3 by HP alone – some 179,000 units, according to recent figures from IDC. Q3 was the second successive quarter of negative sequential growth for Tablet PCs, Canalys said today, with shipments falling 20% over Q2’s total. During the 11-month period since the platform’s launch, Tablet PCs have managed to take less than 1% of the notebook market.
