Android Tablets Starting To Take iPad Market

Whilst the iPad 2 remains the king of the tablet market, things are starting to get a bit more competitive. Android tablets now account for a quarter of the market and that share is growing quarter by quarter.

Best selling Android tablet is the original Galaxy Tab with 6% of the market. The wide variety of Android tablets now in the market means that their market share looks like the old 'long-tail' distribution curve.

Apple's legal battles to halt the competition don't seem to be having an effect with the result probably being similar to the smartphone market, where the iPhone is struggling to compete with Android.
