Android Takes Hold of 27% Of The Tablet Market In Just One Year

Android is still producing explosive numbers and showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.  According to Business Wire, in the time span of just one year, when not even yet in the tablet category, Android has quickly gained ground to claim 27% of the tablet market.  That’s pretty impressive considering about this time one year ago the only contender around was the iPad.  If this isn’t a clear indication that Android is here to stay and the masses continue to demand the popular OS, I don’t know what is.  And with pre-orders in the vicinity of 50,000 per day for the Kindle Fire, that market share percentage is only bound to rise, and rise fast.  I can only assume that with all of the diversity and hardware choices that Android offers, this is what is appealing to most consumers.  Devices like the Asus Eee Pad Transformer, the Galaxy Tab 10.1, 8.9 and 7.0 Plus are but just a glimpse of the many offerings and flavors of devices and manufactures available today.   What’s your take on it all?  Feel free to leave a comment or two below.
