    Very skeptical of the way the data is used. There are too many broad or vague caveats to really make much sense of what is being looked at.

    For example this is based on info from apps running the AdDuplex SDK whatever that's worth. It may in itself bias the result because only a certain category of app uses the SDK (coupon apps for example).

    This is only among Windows devices not all OSes, which would significantly deflate the real world representation of the numbers. Windows 8/RT only has a 2.9% share of all tablet OSes in 2012 and then Surface would only be 7.6% of that small slice. IDC: Windows Tablet Share To Hit 10.3% In 2016

    There is no distinction between Windows 8 and Windows RT tablets.

    There is no definition of what is considered a tablet. What are the HP tablets that are doing so well?

    Original source is here and also brings up some questions in an update: Microsoft Surface users account for 8% of Windows 8 devices worldwide, dominates RT category. | Windows Phone Central

    Overall just too many questions to make any sense of what is going on here.
