Both the iPad and the Android devices are pretty powerful and both have got die hard fans who would give up anything for their respective devices. Right now, the iPad is the cream of the crop. It has overshadowed everything else and companies are struggling pretty hard to get their devices selling.
The WSJ quotes the Dell Chief, Michael Dell, on the tablet wars as:
Not tomorrow. Not the next day. But again, if you look at 18 months ago, Android phones were like, “What is that?” And now there are more Android phones than iPhones. I don’t see any reason why the same won’t occur with Android tablets.
As of today, the iPad owns around 80% market share as compared to 83% last year. The honeycomb armored Motorola Xoom was considered as the one that would be giving tough competition to Apple. But sadly the sales figures never matched the expectations and the Deutsche Bank said recently that only 100,000 units of the device have been sold so far.
Everyone knows that the future of computers lies in the tablets. With everyone now hastily jumping the ship, no one (even collectively) has been able to shake the iPad.
From the trend above, we can expect the iPad to come down eventually (as the old wise man used to say, Whatever goes up must come down), it will definitely not happen anytime soon.
There can be only one badass in the system, and love it or hate it, it is the iPad at present.
