HP TouchPad was number 2 tablet for most of 2011

The WebOS running HP TouchPad may have been discontinued, but thanks to the fire sales on the device it has taken the position of #2 tablet position for the first three quarters of 2011.

The number one position is held by Apple's iPad of course, which is dominating the tablet market. HP follows by capturing 17% of the market share, with Samsung with 16%, Asus at 10% and Motorola and Acer with 9% of the tablets. With Android tablet being around much longer than WebOS it is quite an achievement for WebOS to hold that much of the market share.

But with HP selling their tablets at a loss and with the uncertain WebOS future we have to wonder if the current HP TouchPad owners will enjoy their tablets for much longer.
