PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Android accounted for 39% of the market in the final three months of last year, up from 29% a year earlier, Strategy Analytics said. Apple's share fell to 58% from 68%. Microsoft's share stood at 1.5%." Really now.

Tablet seeings

Since it seems to matter so much...

In the last year, I have seen three iPads, one Playbook, and one Android tablet from an unknown manufacturer. All of these were in a train, on the A line of Ile-de-France's regional rail network, and most of these were seen in the afternoon (with the exception of the Playbook, which was seen in the morning around 8h30 GMT+1).

I have never seen a tablet being used in an academic setting ever, nor at relatives' homes, nor on the C line of the same rail network, which I take much more frequently than the A line.

From this set of data, I conclude that the market share of iOS is 60%, followed by Android and QNX at 20%. People only use tablets in trains of the A line for some weird reason, which implies that transfers of property must occur when people enter and leave the train. Since the C line is operated by a different operator than the A line, my understanding is that it is forbidden to use tablets on this train line, based on the fact that I have not read the terms of services of this train line and that they can thus contain any sort of weird articles of my liking.

Can we stop posting personal tablet usage observations sprinkled with speculation on how this applies to the rest of the universe now ?
