Questioning the Android/iOS tablet debate #

ZDNet ask “Can any tablet OS challenge Android and iOS?”

Hold on a minute. That’s the second question. The first question is “Can Android’s tablet OS challenge iOS?” and right now I still think the answer is not yet definitive. Just because lots of manufacturers have pushed out Android tablets onto store shelves around the world does not mean it’s established. I could ship twenty million Palm OS handsets and be ‘established’ given that logic (or 2.7 million BlackBerry 10 devices…).

The iPad range is established, and users are comfortable. I’ve yet to see indications that any other manufacturer has stepped up to deliver an Android tablet system that a significant number of consumers would buy, as opposed to pockets of Xperia and Galaxy fans around the world.
