This is the first report we’ve heard of this nature, but it’s worth talking about anyway. According to Strategy Analytics, Android now owns 30% of worldwide market share for tablets with Apple sliding on down to around 61%. By contrast, in Q2 of last year, Apple had a strangle hold on the market with 94% and Android accounted for a measly 2.9%, understandable considering not even the original Galaxy Tab was out back then. Excuse me if I sound a bit surprised, but with all of the silly fear-mongering for Android tablets in recent months I was made to believe that Android was irrelevant in the tablet space. Of course, we must consider that one report from one research firm is not the end all be all of statistics, but we have a feeling similar reports will soon follow. [BGR]
