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.

But given that web surfing seems to be such a core tablet use one would have to ask what are those Android tablet users actually doing with their tablets?

Yep... Like there's nothing to use a tablet for, except web surfing. Now tell me, what percentage of time spent in the tunnels the WiFi is visible? Clearly iPad users on the tube are not using iPads for web browsing... So answer this "what are those iPad tablet users actually doing with their tablets?"

PS: Thanks for reminding that London is a city with high cost of living, where iPhone/iPad/other premium product has more consumers. London also has a lot of Michelin star chefs and very expensive cars.
