Android smartphone users prefer iPads

Written by


Willing to embrace other religions
Here is some rather depressing news for tablet vendors who don’t happen to have a chewed piece of fruit in their logo.

According to a recent report by Canaccord Genuity, it turns out that Android phone users are buying iPads rather than Android tablets such as Motorola’s Xoom or Samsung’s Tab series. Although Canaccord believes Samsung, Amazon and Asus pose a threat to Apple’s market dominance, strong iPad adoption is proving to be a serious hurdle for all Android tablets.

Analysts attribute the trend to Apple’s substantial lead in tablet apps, and once consumers are hooked they tend to stick to the same system, which is a source of concern for Android vendors. The fact that decent Android tablets cost nearly as much as iPads is not helping, either. Hence, Apple is expected to maintain a dominant 56 percent share in the tablet market this year and it is set to grab more than 50 percent next year.

In addition, analysts believe Windows 8 tablets could do well once they start shipping next year, particularly in the enterprise market.

I know how it feels. I was going to change my mobile from an iPhone 4 to a samsung galaxy last year due to antennae issue but changed my mind when I realized how much software I'd lose in the switchover. I'm hooked... (or is that fooked!)

These people probably just bought the ipad because they didn't want to spend another $300-$600 on the same exact thing they carry in their pockets. I'm sure a lot of Iphone users buy android tablets too.

Best of both worlds I say, android had 4g speeds for a while now, as well as dual core, best free gps turn by turn, free tethering in some cases as a wifi hotspot! Etc...

And now all you need is an ipad 2 to enjoy all those aps not available for android yet and you feed you device with 4g speeds with your android 4g device, duh its obvoiuse lol. Jk

Most people ask me if my Asus Transformer is an iPad... I just smile and say yes. In conclusion, everyone think Android devices are iPad to start with.

But when Windows 8 is out im sure this will be a completely different story. Just look at Windows Phone 7, an absolutely beautiful operating system. The only problem with it is that it's appstore is currently smaller than the competition but thats nothing that I miss.

I believe I read in CPU Magazine that 80% of all tablets purchased were iPads so this isn't surprising.
