FORTUNE — Total shipments of smart devices, which Canalys defines as notebook PCs, smartphones and tablets, hit a record 308.7 million units in the first quarter of 2013, according to a press release issued Thursday.
The surprises were in the details:
- In the fast-growing tablet market (up 106.1% year over year to nearly 42 million units) Apple lost market share to Android for the third quarter in a row but still leads with a 46.4% share.
- Smartphone shipments were slower (up 47.9% to 216.3 million units), with Android accounting for 75.6% of them. Samsung was the big winner, growing shipments 64.3% according to Canalys, to reach a 32% share. Apple’s 6.7% growth was its slowest since the iPhone launched in 2007.
- Notebook PC shipments contracted by 13.1% to a total of 50.5 million units. The biggest decline was in Western Europe, where shipments fell 25.2%.
