    Fortune reports that Nielsen today published the results from its April survey of tablet owners in the United States. Unsurprisingly, the survey found that the iPad still has the lion’s share of the market - 82% to be exact, 43% for the Wi-Fi-only version and 39% for the 3G+Wi-Fi version. Fortune notes that this is slightly less than the 90% claimed by Steve Jobs at the iPad 2 launch back in March. Very, very far behind in second place, we have “Otherâ€, with 9%, then the Samsung Galaxy Tab with 4%, the Dell Streak with 3%, and the Motorola XOOM with 2%.

    Nielsen also used the survey to look at how tablets have affected their owners' use of PCs and other devices. It found that 35% of tablet owners who also have a desktop computer use their desktop less often or not at all, and that 32% of tablet owners who also have laptops said that they use their laptop less often or never. As far as portable games consoles are concerned, the survey found that 25% of tablet owners use their portable console less or not at all. 27% of tablet owners reported using their portable media player less or not at all, and 27% of tablet owners said that they used their eReader less often or not at all.
