Pieces of the pie

Though Apple and Samsung’s shares of the “connected device” market both went up in 2012, Samsung’s rose considerably more nabbing the top spot, according to IDC.

Lenovo came in third with 6.5 percent of the market, and HP and Dell followed with 4.8 percent and 3.2 percent respectively.

Finally, the other 46.4 percent of the market went to a mish-mash of other brands, which IDC lumped together into one category known as “other.”
