PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Android accounted for 39% of the market in the final three months of last year, up from 29% a year earlier, Strategy Analytics said. Apple's share fell to 58% from 68%. Microsoft's share stood at 1.5%." Really now.

The "I haven't seen one"-arguments are meaningless. Other than my own and my parents' iPad 2 (both of which *I* bought), I have never seen an iPad in the wild. Not a single one.

I've seen one iPad and one Toshiba Thrive in the wild.

When I have visitors at work who try to sell my something they often pull an iPad to do a presentation.

I have seen also some iPads outside of work, but a lot of people mention they have one.

I've seen plenty. Naturally not as many as smartphones, but on a ferry, plane, coffee shops, business meetings. Many many people are taking iPads instead of laptops to meetings now. Yet to see a single Android tablet.
One playbook, but that guy was from Waterloo ;)

I see ipads all over the place at school. Ironically the only other tablet I've seen in the wild is a touchpad.

Thom,
I invite you to travel on the 18:25 from Waterloo to Alton. I saw at least 10 iPads in use the other day.
Mind you, you will probably have to stand as far as Farnham...

I concur, I have not seen a single ipad in the wild, so they must not be selling...
