    More competition at lower prices -> iPad isn't at a price for everyone, and nor would I expect it to. Apple aren't sitting on their laurels the market is evening out.

    iPad hardware is extremely competitive (have you seen the benchmarks for 4th Gen?) .

    I'm personally really looking forward to iOS from Jonny Ive and Craig Federighi

    It is a bunch of companies in the mix, expecting apple to have a huge majority is unrealistic.

    Maybe unit marketshare is decline, but Apple is raking in 85-90% of the profits. That's all they care about in the end.

    Considering Apple seems to be the only company reporting number of devices sold how do we believe any of this? We've got Apple's sales figures compared to estimates for other companies. How is that a fair comparison?

    Well yeah. Android tablets are more affordable and selling close to cost.

    Doesn't mean less people are using iPads than before just more people are buying the low end tabs for the sake of owning one.
