Android tablets browsing share is still relatively low in Europe, but very strong in Asia. Despite the iPad's head start in the market, Android's tablet browsing share has nearly matched the iPad in Asia. More importantly, the overall trend is sharply in favor of Android tablets, which supports the strong shipment performance over the past few quarters.

Good analysis. Sameer Singh compares the growth trend of Android tablets to that of Android smartphones in the past, and it shows that Android tablet usage is actually growing faster than Android smartphone usage did in the past.

At this point, nothing seems to be able to stop Android's total and utter dominance. Not Apple, not Microsoft. Scary.

So, I've used iOS since 2008. I messed about with Android on my N800, but didn't own a real Android device till the Nexus 7. Initially, that was a great device, but pre 4.3, it seriously struggled under heavy use. With 4.3 and a factory reset, its back to being a joy to use. And now I have replaced my iPhone 4 with a nexus 4.

I moved to Android full time because I'm a developer. I messed about with the Android SDK and fell in love, so that Aide was my new religion. On device development beats everything in my world.
