Apple and Samsung have lost ground in the tablet computer market as growth cools in the once-hot segment, the research firm IDC said Thursday. An IDC survey said sales of tablets in the March-June period were 49.3 million, up a modest 11 percent from a year ago but down 1.5 percent from the previous quarter. Apple, which popularized tablets with its iPad, remained the largest single vendor but its market share fell to 26.9 percent from 33 percent last year. IDC's survey showed Apple shipped 13.3 million iPads, above Apple's own report this week showing 12.3 million sold.
