As much of an Apple fan as I am, I don't think this report is nonsense. Statistically, given how Android is marketed/sold, it will be the embedded system of choice for every tablet maker of all shapes and sizes. What other choice do you have if you want to make a tablet? iOS? Not available. Windows? Maybe but personally I think that ship has sailed years ago for Microsoft. Write your own? Sure, you could do that but why when time to market is so much faster (and likely cheaper) if you just license the newest flavor or Android?Nonsense
I think it doesn't matter. Like, *at all*. Apple is the most profitable company on the globe. Their ability to profit absurdly does not rest on the need to have a dominant portion market share. They're not a high volume low margin business. That they are currently a *high volume* high margin business in some markets, like the tablet, is obviously great for investors, but Apple can (and will) lose market share to other tablet makers and continue to make money hand over fist, -as is the case with the iPhone.http://www.engadget.com/2012/03/14/idc-android-tablets-will-overtake-ipad-by-2015/
Very interesting. What do you guys think?
