I think the strategy of auto-scaling apps has failed, Google should do something about it.

Waiting Desperately for Surface and other Windows 8 Pro based tablets...

I actually have to agree with you. There are really no very good tablets right now. There are some okay ones. The iPad is just a joke, you can't do anything with that more than you could with an iPod Touch (except for data connectivity). And then Android tablets have been plagued by lack of apps and underwhelming hardware. The reason I would buy a tablet is to have the portability and entertainment of a smartphone, but the productivity of a laptop, but so far, there isn't anything like that. I want office on a tablet!!!....... And that's where surface comes in... Even though I'm an avid Android fan (I love it for my S3), I do not want an Android tablet. I want the Surface (or a different Windows 8 tablet). So It strikes that balance of laptop productivity and smartphone media consumption.

I completely agree. I would love to see a dual boot Android/Ubuntu tablet come out similar to what windows is coming out with.

Yeah I mean how awesome would a Windows/Android tablet be?... But I doubt that'll ever happen. I guess we'll just leave that to my dreams...

Also, this is Google. Every company will want to make their number look as inflated as possible..
The actual value may be way lower, cant be 70,000 as it'll end up 24 million in a year which we all know it didn't sell more than 5 million last year.

Beside Kindle Fire, Android tablets are also being canibalized by the phabets. Samsung claimed they sold 7 million Galaxy notes in just 8 months.

Galaxy note isn't a tablet.. unless Google is counting that, we will never know

he said that TABLETS were being cannibalized by PHABLETS, never said note is a tablet, and im assuming that google would know the difference between a phone and a tablet

25 million tablets worldwide isn't that hard to believe.

google admit it Android is not mature enough for tablet it needs to do more then do casual stuff it works awsome for moblies but maybe not what users expect on tablets
10. protozeloz (Posts: 5396; Member since: 16 Sep 2010)
and why is that? app selection? I mean most android tablets can do more than most any other tab on the market

Don't mind him, he's just a nokia fanboy, envious of the Android ecosystem.
20. haseebzahid (Posts: 1853; Member since: 22 Feb 2012)
its not the apps people want to do on tablets if u are correct why its tablet market not captured by android i should recommend full linux on tablet then andorid because apps is not the whole game here tablet is to big for just games and newspapers and casual stuff as MS highlighted their point of view for tablet is correct
21. haseebzahid (Posts: 1853; Member since: 22 Feb 2012)
most of other tablets O_o how many others are there except Ipads :\
24. haseebzahid (Posts: 1853; Member since: 22 Feb 2012)
ow didnt know about that...
main thing here that matter is Tablet is not primary gargate everyone has to carry its a new thing but moblies have become more important so everyone get moblie for sure but on tablet its more then that apps they need to get customer attention since it is costy and most of things on these tablets we can also do on moblies.....

It's not a surprise. Tablets are expensive and they have a niche market...

What is wrong with Asus transformer prime?
Especially the infinity 700?
Even the basic prime held its own against the new iPad in most of the comparison reviews.
It's just sad how everybody are after iPad and barely anyone knows about the primes..

I just don't see the need for a tablet. If I want to spend $500, I'll get a low end laptop, which will be infinitely more powerful and flexible.
22. darac (Posts: 2156; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
I think you're a wee bit prejudiced.
Transformer Prime wouldn't be "infinitely" less powerful than your low end laptop
It would also:
- be about 4-6 times lighter
- have about 2-4 times longer battery life
- have a much higher quality screen
- have easy access to 600 000+ apps
- be far more snappy and fluid on JB than your laptop could hope to be on windows
Oh and there's that thing called the touch operation

I assume that "activation's" only counts for those with 3g / 4g , not wifi only , which is probably the majority .
