Intel's shipments of application processors for tablets have increased by a factor of three in 3Q14, thanks to increased traction in Android-based tablets, according to Strategy Analytics. The worldwide market for application processors for tablets was worth $1.4 billion in 3Q14, up 16 percent YoY, the market research firm reported.

The market analyst also stated that Apple, Intel, Qualcomm, MediaTek and Samsung occupied the top five spots in the market. Apple was the leader with 30 per cent revenue share, followed by Intel with 19 per cent and Qualcomm with 14 per cent.
