The Disappointment of Android Tablets

Slashgear estimates that, out of approximately 190 million Android devices, just 3.4 million of them run Honeycomb, the tablet version of Android.

In other words, there are less than 4 million Google-certified Android tablets out there. For comparison, Apple sold 9.25 million iPads in the last quarter alone.

Ouch. This is why Dell was smart to abandon Android tablets in favor of Windows 8.

Of course, the Amazon Fire tablet is coming out soon, but you can’t even consider it an Android device at this point. That thing is all about Amazon’s ecosystem.
