Booming iPad sales have helped tablet sales skyrocket, but other firms are starting to see success too, analyst firms have reported.

IDC said tablet shipments were up 66% in the second quarter to 25 million globally, a jump from 15 million in the same quarter last year.

Much of the growth was down to Apple posting its best quarterly sales yet for the iPad, shipping 17 million - well above its previous record of 15.4 million in the last quarter of 2011.
