Are the Samsung Galaxy Tabs and Dell Streaks catching up with Apple’s iPad? Yes, say the results of a recent study by Strategy Analytics, a global market researcher. As per the study, Apple shipped a total number of 7.3 million units in the last quarter of 2010 when compared to 4.2 million in the 3rd quarter. On the other hand, 2.1 million Android Tablets were shipped in the last quarter of 2010. Apple loyalists would argue that this number is in no way close to Apple’s figures. But, wait before you jump to conclusions. In the 3rd quarter of 2010, only 100,000 Android units were shipped. Now, you can compare the two quarters and see the rapid increase in shipments.
The reasons for the increased fondness for Android tablets like Samsung Galaxy are their advanced features, impressive specifications and above all, a completely affordable price when compared to the iPad.
Apple better release their iPad 2 as quickly as possible to maintain their firm hold on the market.
