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.

Bottom line is: any study of platform X over platform Y is going to be skewed toward the author's favored side. Android is successful, as is iOS. We all get our apps and everyone's happy. Competition is a fine thing, although if Google keeps alienating users we may see Android fall a bit.
