Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "In December, the Google Nexus made by Taiwan's Asustek Computer Inc. accounted for 44.4% of all tablet sales by volume electronics retailers. That's according to a survey of 2,400 stores nationwide by market research firm BCN Inc., released Wednesday. Google's figure beat Apple's 40.1% share, dethroning the iPad for the first time since it went on sale in May 2010." Just as I and many others with me predicted, what happened in the smartphone market will also happen in the tablet market: Android will take the numbers, iOS will take the figures (i.e., profit). As far as I know, this is the first time this has actually materialised fully in a market, though. Also, while it was inevitable that Android would overtake iOS on tablets (even if it is just a single country, for now), I don't think anyone predicted it would be a single model? Colour me impressed (which is pink).

I have yet to see any app on the ipad which would make the mini worthwhile. Everything there is either useless bling, or would work far better on the larger version.

I don't really see how Android's app selection is much different. I mean, there's a small amount of good, worthwhile apps for both operating systems and then there's truckloads of crap ones -- Android is no exception.
