    Well this will all be a lot clearer after the next few quarters, with supply issues greatly reduced and a second christmas season's data. An interesting question is whether the iPad is bringing people who previously used Android handsets around to the iOS experience - if so it could introduce yet another halo effect for Apple.

    Oh, and back to the subject of Android tablets

    Apparently Hummingbird now supports 250-350 apps that were written just for it.

    Who's a cute little platform then?

    Brilliant reply. You state something that's not correct, and when shown that with numbers, you pretend it doesn't matter.
