BEIJING, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- The iPad's market share in China's tablet PC sector climbed to over 72.6 percent in the second quarter of 2012, according to a report released Monday by market researcher Analysys International.

The figure marked a 20.06-percent increase from the first quarter of 2012, said the report.

Behind the iPad, the tablet PC from Lenovo Group, the world's second-biggest PC maker, held about 8.38 percent of the market share.

Meanwhile, Samsung's tablet PC saw a 7.69-percent year-on-year decrease in its market share, which stood at 3.59 percent in the second quarter of 2012.

Apple Inc. launched the new generation of iPad in the Chinese market in March, but consumers were unable to buy them until the second quarter, said Li Yanyan, an analyst with Analysys International.

Besides, the price cut for the iPad 2 also encouraged purchases, she said.
