I was thinking the same thing.
also, is the share lower because sales are lower or because the total units are higher or a combo
It's like the whole Kindle/Kindle fire thing. Claims were may that it was lowering the iPads market share but iPad sales haven't really dropped, the total units have gone up. so by the rules of math of course the percent is lower

Which means there are plenty of folks left to buy a tablet and decrease Apple's cut of an increasing total without a drop in iPad sales.
Also how many of those folks bought a Playbook so they are counted in the sales, but then returned it for something else. Sales are never adjusted for returns after all.
