Sasha Pallenberg from the specialist Internet site Netbooknews has repeated his prediction that sales of tablet computers using Android would surpass those of the iPad by the end of next year. This prediction seems to be for unit sales volume and depends upon the success of $100 and cheaper tablets and $200 tablets. Dollar volume market share would then still see Apple iPad tablet dominance lasting longer.
Jeff Orr, from the sector company ABI Research, noted that tablet computers which run on the Android operating system owned by Google have managed to occupy 20 percent of the growing market.
He added however that while “many vendors have introduced media tablets, none are separating themselves from the pack to pose a serious threat to Apple.”
