Windows tablets are racking up more sales in the second quarter than RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook, according to analysts.

Windows tablets outselling BlackBerry's PlayBook

Strategy Analytics said Windows tablets had a 4.6% share of the market, despite Microsoft yet to release a tablet-focused version of its OS. The PlayBook has a 3.3% share, the analyst firm said.

RIM launched Playbook, its first tablet, in April to lackluster reviews from many – although PC Pro described it as “superb”.

Neither company is offering much of a fight to market leader Apple, which continues to fend off a challenge from Google’s Android.

Apple’s iPad tablet dominated the market with a 61.3% share. But Android increased its market share to 30% from 2.9% in the same quarter a year ago, when Apple had 94.3% of the market, Strategy Analytics claimed.

Lenovo yesterday revealed a pair of Android tablets, but won’t release a Windows version until the end of the year.
