Android’s rivalry with Apple’s iPad started with the launch of Android OS for tablets. Ever since their launch, Android tablets are giving a tough competition to the Apple’s beast. According to a study, Android tablets are taking the market share from the iPad at a very high speed.
It is expected that Android tablets will beat the iPad in terms of sales in 5 years and that is a huge compliment seeing that the iPad nearly owns tablet market.
Many factors are responsible for Android’s high growth rate which include better APIs , better apps, open source OS and the ease to use. Furthermore, unlike the iPad, Android tablets get regular updates for their OS which enables them to use the latest services provided by their carriers.
Of course, it will not be easy for Android tablets to remove the iPad from its first position but if we look closely on the growth rate of Android tablets, it is nearly confirmed that Google’s pet will replace Apple’s demon from the throne and will take its crown.
Whatever be the outcome of this competition, users will be hugely benefited from this rivalry as it will bring down costs and will ensure that users get best services from their tablets.
Let’s see what future has in store for us.
