Apple may still be the tablet to beat but its market share actually went down compared to last quarter. A 14 percent decrease was observed, no thanks to the increasing Android tablet share according to an ABI Research report. There is a possibility that the Android tablet may surpass iPad at the rate Android is going. That’s not impossible because there are more Android tablet choices available. In the smartphone department, Android phones already made it past the Apple iPhone.
However, there are people who think iPad will dominate the tablet market with Android following closely, and then a small percent for other mobile OS like Windows Phone 8. It actually gets exciting every year. Just wait and see.
