It seems as if Google's Android operating system has managed to wrest away tablet market from Apple's widely popular iPad over the past 12 months.



Nevertheless, no single vendor who deployed Android(or any other OS) was  able to mount
a significant challenge against the iPad.
"Many vendors introduced media tablets, but none are separating themselves from the pack
to pose a serious threat to Apple , ABI Research analyst Jeff Orr told TG Daily in
an emailed-statement."
In fact most have introduced products at prices higher than similarly 
configured i Pads .Apple, never a company waiting for others, has 
introduced its second generation iPad media tablet while keeping 
product pricing unchanged.
According to Orr, Android fragmentation is significantly hindering the growth
of tablets.To be sure , app devs are forced to choose an initial software 
platform-and may delay kicking off development if the market potential is not
 significant.
It is worth noting that Google's Android OS currently boasts no less than three
different software builds simultaneously deployed across a number media tablets.
"De-featured, low cost media tablets are being introduced by more than fifty 
vendors in 2011. This will certainly help bolster year-over-year growth for the
category" said Orr.
[However ] it also creates a negative perception in the minds of mass consumer
audience about the readiness of media tablets to be fully functional within the
next several years. Good user experiences and product response are needed to
propel this market beyond the' early adopter'stage."
