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.

*cough* Google Currents *cough*


I assume you are suggesting that Google Currents is used by so many Android tablet users (but oddly not by iPad users) that it hides enough Android user from those conducting platform web usage surveys to completely distort the survey results.

Novel idea. I find it a bit implausible but would love to see some evidence supporting it.
