HP has captured nearly two thirds of the tablet PC market share in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region according to first quarter figures released by analyst firm, Canalys.

HP has one tablet PC product in the market, the TC1000, and this has captured 61% of the market share during the first quarter of 2003. These figures are in line with HP’s wider performance in the European and Middle East Africa region, where it holds a 67% market share. Toshiba, with its Portégé range, had the second biggest market share in the MEA region at 33.6%.

Christoph Schell, the general manager of the Personal Systems Group of HP Middle East said, “HP’s Tablet PC sales in the region have surpassed our expectations since its launch into the market 6 months ago. We have enjoyed enormous success across the region, primarily in the health and retail sectors.”

The HP Compaq tablet PC TC1000 has stolen a march on its competitors with features such as its light frame (1.3kg) and a detachable keyboard.
