Apple may be head honcho when it comes to tablets, butis cutting into its lead, according to figures from number-crunching analysts.
Doesn't sound like much, but apparently a year ago Apple controlled 94.3 per cent of the market, while Android had just 2.9 per cent. That's quite a big bite that the adorable green robot has taken out of Apple in just one year.
On the one hand, we're not surprised Android is becoming more popular -- after all, it's only in the last year that tablets packing Google's mobile OS have actually started hitting the shelves.
But on the other, it's an impressive level of growth, especially given some of the biggest Android tablets like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and haven't even been released yet.
The news isn't so rosy across the board though -- beleaguered BlackBerry-maker RIM reportedly nets just 3.3 per cent of the tablet market with its PlayBook, less than Windows tablets, which have 4.6 per cent. And Windows tablets are -- not to put too fine a point on it -- rubbish.
We've heard the PlayBook isn't making any money for RIM, thanks to a cunning plan to discount the first 500,000 units to retailers, which backfired when.
