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.

The latest "Apple is doomed" article, man these are getting boring.....and very predictable. Android makers come out with 3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10, and potentially 21-inch tablets, most of which are crap according to respected reviews, while Apple makes 7-inch and 10-inch models that get rave reviews, and Thom jumps on every chance to say that Apple is finished. Same old same ole, I'm tired of it. Of course the Android people are going to sell a boatload of tablets when they make dozens of different sizes and models compared to the two really good ones that Apple makes. It doesn't take rocket science to figure that out. Driving down to the bottom of the market doesn't make much money when you're putting out a dozen different crappy tablets. Not all of them are crap, but most are.
