Android OS seems to be a lucky clover not only for smartphones but for tablets, too. In Q2, 2011, the share of Android-based tablets grew and made up 30 percent. This is a great progress, since in Q2 2010 Android’s share in the tablet market was only 2.9 percent.
However, we should note that in back in Q2 2010 there weren’t many famous tablets based on Android, even the Samsung Galaxy Tab that started the Android boom was released in November 2010. And the tablets that had no access to Google Apps or Android Market could barely have any success… So no wonder Android has only 2.9 percent of the market!
By the way, there is one bad thing in these statistics — there is no distinction between the smartphone version of Android and the special tablet version (Honeycomb). Some sources claim that the tablets running Honeycomb make up only 1 percent (or even less) of all Android tablets, which is very bad.
Will the numbers change in Q3, 2011? We’ll see.
