A report from IDC said that PC tablets grew 111 percent year on year in the last quarter of 2013 in the Middle East and African (MEA) markets.
Shipments amounted to 3.45 million units and both the home segment and the corporate segment showed steady growth. The educational market also saw growth.
Huawei won a deal to supply around 90,000 units in South Africa in the education sector.
Android wins the game – 2.8 million units shipped up 16 percent compared to the same quarter in 2012. iOS fell and Windows OS lost share in Q4 2013.
Top vendor was Samsung, followed by Apple, Lenovo, Asus and Huawei.
The PC market will fall further in 2014, while tablets will grow significantly, IDC said.
