Even though 2012 wasn’t exactly a great year for Apple, some analysts still feel that the company could continue to maintain its stronghold in the tablet market with the upcoming iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2. The iPad Mini turned out to be a huge success when it launched, despite it coming with a lower resolution screen and a higher price tag than many of its competitors’ products.

Even stiff competition from the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8.0 and Amazon’s Kindle Fire don’t stand a chance against Apple’s upcoming tablets. So yes, it may take a little while longer for Google’s Android OS to take over the world of tablets.

According to Chitika, a research firm, in March 2013, 81.9 percent of all web usage from tablets in Canada came from Apple tablets. This figure is 1.4 percent times more than the numbers for February. During the same period, the web traffic coming from Kindle Fire reduced from 8 percent to 7.1 percent, while the Samsung’s Galaxy tablets accounted for just 4.3 percent of the share.

But just because there’s more web traffic coming from Apple tablets, does this mean it’s selling better than other devices? That’s not necessarily true, as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is expected to be a bestseller upon its launch. There’s also going to be tough competition in the form of the Sony Xperia Z tablet. It just means that Apple tablet users are more engaged on their devices.

We’re not quite sure when Apple would reveal the next generation iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2, or what the future holds for them, but we do know that it will take a lot of effort in 2013 for Apple if it wants to hold on to its top spot in the tablet domain.
