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.

I wonder how these numbers compare to regular kindle. When I am in a meeting my phone is more than good enough as I am usually just checking email. The lack of wifi, weight and battery life more or less relegates my use of my nook color with cm-7 to my apartment and mostly used just to browse the web and occasionally read a kindle book. My primary reason for running cm-7 was the kindle app. When I am out I usually just settle for my phone, or bring my kindle when I know there is going to be some down time. I have lots of books for it and the battery life/weight is unbeatable by any tablet (I have the 3G version so I occasionally use it for checking news sites). I still don't find tablets particularly useful when compared to a lightweight laptop or netbook. They are basically a larger version of a phone that requires a wifi connection. Though I may be biased by my hatred of touchscreens and annoyance with stylus support of most tablets. If it had nice stylus support with awesome drawing app, circuit design applications/simulators and palm quality handwriting support I would probably change my mind.
