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.

It is those cheap Android crap tablets that are giving the whole Android tablets range a bad name.

My Cousin bought one of them and complained that it could'nt display HD movies despite the tech blurb saying that it could.

After digging, I found that it could but only if connected to a full HD display. Look at the same movie on the device itself and it was crap.

Frankly a lot of the cheap tablets suffer from the same problem as cheap laptops. viz, 1366x768 displays (or the 16:9 equivalent for tablets).
Once you get a decent display things look up a lot.

You get what you pay for but in these times there are a lot of people who can't afford to pay for something decent and get put off by the crap device they can afford.
