Legal Two different graphs. Both happen to be published at Ars Technica, with one of them coming from a different source. Seemingly completely unrelated, but when you ponder the waterfall of recent lawsuit-related news, these two graphs suddenly tell all there is to tell. These two innocent little graphs illustrate why Apple is attacking Android so ferociously.

lucas_maximus,

"These markets would have still been niche if Apple had not entered them and dominated them."

Hypothetically, why exactly do you think consumer tablets would not have occurred without apple?


It seems to be the direction we were headed in anyways, with the technological advancements of lower power cpus, better battery life, all round lower costs, much cheaper data plans, the time seemed ripe for tablets to become popular. I really wanted a tablet nearly a decade ago, but I baulked at the prices at the time. I am positive that I wasn't alone. In my opinion price has always been the main barrier to mass adoption. We just needed to wait for moores law to kick in and put them at price points consumers were comfortable with.
