    Same thing happened with phones. Apple set the lead and it took the competition a couple of years to catch up and actually be competitive. Price point of the Nexus 7 and the UI experience being on par with Apple was the tipping point in late 2012.

    I own both an iPad and Nexus 7's, and I am sure there are a lot like me. But prior to the first Nexus 7, there was nothing appealing to the Android tablet market. I am also glad to see Windows 8 tablets like the Venue 8 pushing into this market.
