Good afternoon, Synapse Circuit Readers! I know... I know... You Apple Fanboys and Fangirls must hate for what you see as me taking shots at Apple but nothing can be further from the truth... Check this out...

ANDROID TABLETS HAVE BEATEN APPLE’S iPAD TO TAKE THE MARKET SHARE!
I predicted long ago that Android tablets will take over iPad’s market share and my reasoning then wasn’t rocket science. Just like Android has dominated the mobile business through the sheer number of manufacturers and models available it follows that the Android tablet was bound to take over.

I wasn’t joking when I said that this year, 2013, would be the year of the Android tablet. We’ve just seen Google announce the second generation Nexus 7 tablet with a killer spec that it has surpassed the iPad and iPad mini. But there are many more tablets to come from the Android stable. Check out this Acer Iconia A1 tablet spec:

That is pretty good spec for £149.99! It’s rocking Jelly Bean too! I am looking forward to reviewing it.

It is tablets of that nature which makes the availability accessible to just about anyone! The same cannot be said for the iPad and its mini counterpart.

WHAT? WHAT? WHAT?
Again, I just do not understand where Tim Cook gets his statistics from. Sadly, the Apple Fanboys and Fangirls think that I am being unfair and heavily biased against them (Apple) yet nothing can be further from the truth. As you should know by now, what I am against is corporate lies and bullying. Cook and co just looks desperate when they make up their statistics and it could possibly lose them customers / supporters. Besides, it isn’t about the numbers alone. No! It’s about the experience and satisfaction. In terms of quality apps I do think that Apple is slightly ahead of the game – their apps look amazing! However, the quality of Android tablet specific apps will keep getting better as it continues to dominate.

Roll on!

What do you reckon?   

Take good care!
