Android Tablets nearing 40% of the tablet market

The common belief that “there’s no tablet market, just an iPad market” may be changing.

Here’s the reasoning. We know that Android tablet activations only include devices that use Google accounts for the device and apps. That rules out tablets such as the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet, both of which forgo the use of Google apps. So the 70,000 per day are tablets that are purely based on Google’s platform. Burnette notes that Apple sold 17 million iPads in its most recent fiscal quarter, which works out to 188,888 iPads sold each day, on average. Divide that figure into the 70,000 Android tablet sales number and you get 37.2 percent. (more...)
The figures don't take the Nook/Fire into account so the number of Android devices is slightly higher.

What will be interesting is to see how things will shake up when Windows 8 Tablets hit the market and who they will encroach on the most.
