Google The Next Web: "Google has also been working with Samsung to launch a 10-inch tablet, confirming leaks which suggested Google had teamed up with the Korean manufacturer for another device. Our source tells us that internally the tablet goes under the name 'Codename Manta', runs Google's new Android 4.2 operating system (previously referred to as Key Lime Pie, but is set to retain the Jelly Bean branding), and will offer a 2560x1600 pixel (10:16) resolution, which we believe will offer around 300 pixels per inch compared to the new iPad's 264 PPI." Between the iPad and this supposed Android tablet... Poor Surface. Poor, poor Surface.

Android has 70% tablet market share? When did that happen?


I have no idea where he got such numbers. http://www.journalism.org/analysis_report/device_ownership covers only the United States, but according to that report Android has a 48% market share on tablets and iPad has a 52% market share. That's to say that Android - tablets and iPads are more-or-less at an equal footing.

Here in Finland it's harder to find any trustworthy numbers, but apparently Android-smartphones have a market share of 33% and iPhones have a market share of 35%, and of tablets Android has only managed to gather a market share of 12% whereas iPads have 88% market share. One of the reasons for this is the fact that you just do not see Android-tablets being advertised ANYWHERE, and the selection is very poor. Finland is the promised land of smartphones, but for some reason all other kinds of electronic devices are in short supply.
