Advertisements Not at all. Nothing to be jealous of Never claimed they were "facts", which is why I used "maybe". Although I did make a huge mistake- I was looking at sales not existing marketshare. So I did reword the posting. Let me fix further: According to several sources ( http://www.androidcentral.com/all-about-market-share-fragmentation-and-magic-forums is just one), Android sales [rates] have already way surpassed iphone and RIM (and long ago Microsoft and all others except Symbian) and marketshare is climbing at an astounding rate. If it continues (which is extremely likely), it will overtake Symbian and then there will be more Android sales [rate] than any other smartphone OS's in early 2011. And later in 2011, the total number of devices IN USE will surpass any other OS. As for tablets: Android has not really been ready for tablets (manufacturers have been waiting on 3.0). But when it is (which is just a few months now), there will be a slew of new Android tablets, from your pick of manufacturer, priced less than the iPad, with more features and speed, and likely with the same type of Android demand behind it as in the phone sector. The point being- ignoring Android would be extremely unwise for any phone/pad developer.
