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.

To be fair, Adobe isn't particular large on Android. Beside there PDF reader (which has plenty better alternates on Android, some preinstalled by vendors) there isn't much from them there. Flash is either pre-installed and invisible or not supported on newer versions. Whats left is Adobe AIR and I know nobody using Android who installed it.

On iOS situation is different in that Apple and Adobe are partners, eg Photoshop for OSX, and the brand is more promoted, there products are more visible and used more on iOS.

In contrast we could citate a study from, lets say, Chrome how much users they have on iOS vs Android and draw conclusions.
