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.

The only bad scenario I could see is that some PHB up Google management circles decides it's time to milk that cow and than make some steaks, bc they can't pay for it forever and the initial plan didn't work.
And that means turning android into ad ridden nightmare until it is so undesirable that people run screaming back to buy Windows.
