    Low end tablet market huh?

    Yeah Wal-mart has a high market share too, but it doesn't mean it is better than other stores.

    Nobody is saying anything about low end table better than high end tablet. Apple should focus on the high end.

    Low end tablet = low margin
    High end tablet = high margin

    It's much easier to make high profits with high end tablet. As for market share, low end tablet is winning

    Android: 61.2%
    Ipad: 37.2%
    other: 1.6%

    It's very possible that in a few years time, Android will have 75-80% market share in smartphone and 75-80% market share in tablet.

    Google Android is mean to destroy iOS. Much like Netscape was gone into thin air by Microsoft IE. :apple:

    Android is just a rival operating system. Apple doesn't license iOS to the like of Sony, Motorola, Samsung, HTC, Amazon, Asus, HP, B&N etc..to use as an operating system for tablet. They have to use Android instead.

    It's expected that this trend will accelerate. The market share will tilt toward the low margin Android tablet space and Apple will focus on the profitable high end. Abeit at low market share.

    Android: 61.2%
    Ipad: 37.2%
    other: 1.6%


    A lot of mid-range 7" tablets are retailing for $149 now....
    Even the Kindle Fire HD 7" is selling at $159 at many retail locations in the USA.

    It's a race to the bottom with low margin for those involved in this pricing competition to gain market share.
