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.

You sir, cannot count. If you take the sales numbers (from IDC say) over the last several years, globally, you will find there were almost as many Android tablets sold as iPad's.

So, in theory, there is now as many Android tablets out in the wild as there are iPad's.

Usage should therefore be about the same, right? But usage is not the same, iPad's are 10x more prevelant on the Web then Android tablets.

So either the sales numbers are inflated in favor of Android or the usage numbers are inflated in favor of the iPad.

Logic, it's good for you, try it.
