In the News "According to the CONTEXT data, Android tablets now account for 61.2 percent of the Western European tablet market, more than double the 25.1 percent recorded the same time last year. Apple iOS devices, meanwhile, fell to 37.2 percent of Western European tablet market sales by distribution, from 71.2 percent at the same time last year." This is nothing short of a catastrophic collapse of iPad market share in Europe. Furthermore, "This analysis also screens out the effect of Windows 8, credited in some quarters with helping to drive increased tablet market share and cut into Appleā€™s tablet lead, but in fact with little to no impact, according to CONTEXT." And yes, Windows 8 on tablets is a dud.

Just saying, dud Windows sales are still counted in hundreds of millions...


Not really. Win8 doesn't have "hundreds of millions" in sales. Historically, MS sells nearly 100 million licenses a year.

Now factor in that TFA was discussing tablets, which is only a very small portion and as far as we can tell isn't even reaching the 10 million mark. (MS hasn't really released numbers other than that they haven't sold as many as they thought they would.)
