Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "According to new research from Strategy Analytics, global Android tablet shipments have increased 177 percent annually to 17.6 million units. The total number of tablets shipped in Q1 of 2013 was 40.6 million. Since 17.6 million of those 40 million tablets where powered by Android then it means that Android has a 43 percent global share. The other two big operating systems (and their respective eco-systems) in the global tablet market are Apple’s iOS and Microsoft’s Windows 8 RT. Apple still leads the race with a 48 percent market share, while Microsoft has managed to go from nothing (since Windows 8 RT is its first real tablet OS) to a 7.5 percent market share by selling some 3 million Windows based tablets." If these figures are even remotely accurate, we're going to see Android dominate the tablet (in market share) too. Not good. The Windows RT figures are a shimmer of hope, though.

Anything much? I'm sorry, but web browsing is not everything.
How many times do people have to repeat it for you?

Given that sales numbers have been reported by many independent studies, I have to conclude:
- You are an ignorant Apple fanboi, that will do anything to support his viewpoint.(You sound like proponents of ID by now)

or

- You are just plain trolling.

Wither way, you do not come out as anything good.
