Can Apple Gain Traction in the Indian Tablet Market?

The Indian market for mobile devices is becoming increasingly important for companies seeking growth in emerging markets. IDC's most recent estimates peg Samsung as the market leader, with 16% market share, while Apple  enjoys just 10% of the market. The overall market is expected to soar this year to 6 million units, driven by low-cost devices. Apple has made several moves toward affordability recently, particularly with the iPhone 4.
