Apple's iPad to remain the dominant tablet apps platform through 2017, phone apps go to Android

Overall, Strategy Analytics predicts that a total of 350 billion app downloads will be undertaken in the 2008-2017 period, with $52 billion collected as cash from paid apps. By 2017, however, they expect less than ten percent of all apps to be paid, as their amount has been steadily declining for the sake of freemium applications revenue...

You know what makes any and all articles on the iPad tablet market vs the Android tablet market...
Android doesnt separate them... I use the exact same apps on my phone as I do on my tablet, while for some there are HD versions (to milk the most cash outta an app/customer), most of them follow Android guidelines and are universal...
articles like these make me scratch my head...

iOS has the edge no doubt, but once a couple of popular developers come out with proper Android tablications, the competition won't risk falling behind, and all of the sudden all will be busy developing. It'll be sooner than you think too, my Christmas time they could be more Android tab users than iOS, and if big developer won't fill the gap, small ones will jump on the opportunity. My advice for myself is to start making one right away.

I really hope android tablets get enough attention soooner
I think if all android tablets manufacturers agreed on a specific res that would be a step closer in making it easier on developers android tablets are of so many different res and that's not easy for the developers
but right now I don't see a bright future although I hope

No one can predict the future. Strategy Analytics are just bogos, they predicted Apple stocks would rise to 900US and now its going steady down to 500US marks.

Excuse me, what exactly did you win??? Owning an Android phone doesn't make you an Android.
I don't really trust in statistics and analystics... Nothing can be predicted as nothing is consistant...

your such a fanboy, sure android is good and all but guess what its not what you think it is. you paint it as the ultimate os , you need some perspective
theres no google take over , and no ones crying. most dont think there part of a war like you do. its all tech, just because you use android doesnt mean you can slate every other os and everyone who uses something else
pathetic thats all it is. and raised the bar? not really. there are different approaches to an os so not one os can raise the bar entirely for the other. everything has flaws too so keep that in mind when your doing your fanboy crap
