maybe but I keep hearing about all these android tablets that are going to be iPad killers but I never see anyone using them. Go to Best Buy or Target and half the time they're not working. Certainly don't draw your eye to them like iPad does. These analysts seem to be forgetting Windows 8. I can see Android and Windows fighting it out for 2nd place while Apple stays on top.
True, but that's the developed world. Try living in a country where the import taxes multiply the cost of an item by 200-300%. That £200 android tablet becomes a better option then. Tablets are a big thing world wide, everyone wants one. You look cooler with a tablet and smart phone than without. To most it won't matter that it's poorly built or the OS is 3-5 years out of date.
I doubt we will see an iPad killer for a long time, if at all. The iPad is the machine, the OS and the App Store. No competitor has these 3 things going for them. I do think that Apples share ( yearly percentage of total sales) will shrink slightly as companies dump PCs and move to tablets. But Apple will still be the most profitable by far.
