Gartner Predicts Android Tablets Will Stay Second to iPad for Next Five Years
Apparently, the marketing research firm, Gartner, has a crystal ball that tells them that the Apple iPad will remain the reigning king of tablets until at least 2015. They also predict that 'Andy' Tablets will continue playing 'catch-up' but will remain in second place after all that time. I'm sure the algorithmic analytics they use are very advanced, but predictions this far out are nothing more than 'tea-leaf reading'. It is interesting to postulate what will be happening, but it only took Android smartphones a couple of years to knock the iPhone off the top. The current crop of Android Tablets definitely need some improvement before they become truly competitive with the iPad, but Google has a tendency to improve things rather quickly. Ultimately, we will have to wait and see whether Gartner or Google can say... "I told you so."
