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.

Google is doing this to get more Ad hits. Ad hits mean revenue for Google.

If they get to the point where the ads start going overboard people (like me) will start using AdBlockers and other means to keep the screen clear of crap.

We have already hit that point and Google has fired back by removing the adblockers from the store. Yes they can be installed other ways but 99% of users have no idea how so in effect Google has won that battle.
