It looks like ZDNet and Tech Republic writers need to look at this graphic. It seems that Android is doing a bit better than they think. I am many other commenters need to Bookmark this page so that we can rub their noses in it until they quit claiming that Android tablets are all failures.

The two things I see in this is: 1) the cheapest Android, with the least features is kicking butt 2) no mention of Windows even though there have been windows tablets for some time. I myself own a ASUS B1-121 but there are others. Not saying MS is popular, they may have so small a share that it was not worth mentioning, or maybe they define a tablet differently in the stats.

To listen to many bloggers, you would think that the iPad represents WAY more than half of the tablets sold; and you would think the Kindle Fire represents way more than half of the Android tablets sold.

I had no idea Android was doing so well in the tablet space. No wonder Apple hates it so much!
