Sravan Kundojjala, Associate Director, commented, "During Q1
2018, Intel and Qualcomm gained revenue share in the
tablet AP market. Intel continues to capitalise on Windows ecosystem in
tablets and convertibles while Qualcomm gained share with its cellular
tablet AP line up. Strategy Analytics believes that this year will
present the real test of how effective Qualcomm's focus on cellular
integrated products will be in the Windows ecosystem. Qualcomm also has
the potential to expand the ARM-based chip market in Windows tablets."

saw their tablet AP shipments grow in Q1 2018, helped by increased
in-house chip sourcing by their respective device divisions. Both
companies focus on the cellular tablet AP segment, a segment that grew
faster than the non-cellular tablet AP segment in Q1 2018."
