iPad eats up netbook market

Notebooks or mini-notes as DisplaySearch calls them are taking a beating at the hands of the iPad according to the latest numbers. According the firm's research the change from Q2 of 2009 to Q2 of 2010 in the 5-8.9-inch tablet/netbook market has dropped 89% while the 10.2-inch netbook market has declined 8% in the same period.

When sales of the iPad are figured into the market as a whole the total tablet and netbook market grew 29% from Q2 09 to Q2 2010. If you take the iPad out of the picture, the entire tablet/netbook market shrank 14%.

Counting sales of the iPad the total market is predicted to be 16.2 million in Q4 2010 with a YoY change of 23%. Revenues have passed $4B for the market as a while with the iPad claiming a large portion of that money.
