MORE STATS: Android took 22% of the tablet market in Q4 2010

As well as tearing into the lead in the smartphone space, Android is now gaining traction in the tablet world. Data from Strategy Analytics claims Android accounted for 22 percent of the 9.7 million tablet computers sold in the last quarter of 2010 – still quite a distance behind Apple’s 75% iPad stranglehold.

The previous quarter saw Apple take a massive 95% of the tablet market, making this another exciting new BATTLEGROUND to watch over future months and years.

    Looking at android has taken the mobile market in a short space, I’m guessing by next quarter it will be 60/40 to apple, then 70/30 to android by Xmas 2011, as better and cheaper than ios android devices arrive.

    Admittedly Android has really taken off. It would really soar if the manufacturers besides making them faster and adding more bells and whistles, would address the issue of battery life. Battery life has always been been poor and its gotten worse as every new function is added.

    Who ever addresses this issue will probably be the long term winner. Presently none of them is any better than the other because of this issue alone. I have an Android phone but find myself willing to chane systems if I can get much better in use time. What is stand by time when you can’t use the device?

    Whoever deals with this issue will, in the long run be the winner.

    70/30 Android in 8 months? I would like some of what you are smoking – I am wondering with 100K Xooms out there – and millions of iPads – where are these other tablets? Are they talking about the little Galaxy? The one that Verizon is trying to blow out with a 2 year contract for $199? What models are they talking about?? I guarantee they are talking about units shipped or manuafactured – NOT sold – they just aren’t out there – and if you are talking about the $150 Chinese knock offs – well there you go – they aren’t going to take over anything – this is not the Android smartphone revolution where FREE phones make it easy to gain market share – people actually have to PAY for table computers… Not a good sign for android – android users typically turn away from anything with a bill….

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…
