Major fail post, really? Top 5 tablet brands by marketshare:
Apple: 62.8%, Samsung: 7.5%, Amazon: 4%, RIM: 2.3%, ASUS: 2.3%
What do they all have in common? Every single one is a "simple iPad style tablet". Don't pretend that Android's gains have anything to do with bizarro tablets like Sony's. Android is simply cloning what people want, and all they want is an iPad.
