San Mateo, Calif. – Tablet shipments were up almost 60 percent to 45.1 million units during the second quarter, but could have been even higher, according to an IDC report.

The research firm noted that shipments were down 10 percent from the first quarter of 2013 and it blamed the lack of a new iPad by Apple this spring as the culprit for the fall off.

Apple shipped 14.6 million units during the second quarter, down from 19.5 million during the previous quarter. Apple also saw a shortfall compared to 2012 second quarter when it shipped 17 million units.
