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.

ps - sorry to go off topic there.

To address that a little, I'd be really interested to know if anyone can track down ANY tablet manufacturers that offer THEIR wares with 'No OS' installed..?

I know quite a few manufacters of development systems offer hardware that will run both Ubuntu as well as Android. but not offered as consumer systems, certainly not without an OS.

It would be really interesting if in the future, a provider step up and created Quality OS agnostic tablet hardware able to run Ubuntu, Android, ...??Windows RT if MS were courageous in the future and opened up the RT platform to competition.(along with opening up the Windows Desktop capability on RT too..) THAT would be really interesting..

If they tank hard enough... maaaybe they might think along those scary lines..
