There's an article over at BGR saying many regular Android phone manufacturers may scale back on Android tablets. The exception being Samsung. http://www.bgr.com/2011/06/17/andro...ting-focus-back-to-cell-phones-report-claims/ I really think the iPad will control the market share similar to the iPod market share. Although it maybe a 50-60% share for the iPad as opposed to the greater than 70% ipod market share Apple enjoyed. Android's phone growth (and I've owned multiple Android phones, including the original G1 and currently a Motorola Atrix...so I am always an early adapter). But I think Android's growth in the phone market was obviously due to massive price cutting/subsidizes that comes from cell phone contracts. But the tablet market is a different animal. Consumers don't want a "subsidized" tablet because most don't want to pay extra for another monthly data. So Android tablets manufacturers now have to compete on full retail price with Apple's iPad. And that's an uphill battle. Considering the price points are very similar, it's obvious that Android manufactures can't afford to under cut the iPad by very much or else they risk selling products at a loss. And many companies can't afford to sell at a loss for very long. The cell phone carriers aren't helping out Android tablet makers because they aren't going to risk subsidizing tablets because the consumer market just isn't there. If you look at many subsidized tablet contracts...at most cell phone companies are subsidizing $200 off the price of a tablet in exchange for a mandatory 24 month data plan. Consumers just don't want that. Cell phone carriers aren't subsidizing $300-400 dollars like they are with other smartphone. What does everyone think?
