The worldwide tablet market grew 11.5 percent from last year as 53.8 million units shipped in the third quarter, up from 48.3 million last year, according to IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Tablet Tracker.
The research firm said the growth is due in large part to the U.S. market as back-to-school promotions and the U.S. market's appetite for connected tablets fueled the rising numbers.
