    Your opinion is ridiculous.

    Android 2.2 on Tablets is SAME as iOS on iPad, if not much more advanced. Android 1.6 SDK introduced support for LARGER screens and LARGER resolution, that means nearly all of the 100 thousand Android apps work fine on Tablets, not same on iOS.

    Honeycomb is CUSTOM OS designed specifically for Tablets, nothing like iOS.

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab’s relative success… relative to what? Samsung has said that sales are “quite small”, and it’s reported to have a return rate of 16%.

    I fail to see how dismal sales (and high returns of those few sold) show demand for much of anything, aside from “anything other than a Galaxy Tab”.

    Uhm, no ‘they’ didn’t. Their CEO said Galaxy sales were “Quite smooth.” Given that Samsung has reported selling a (corporate) record number of handsets last year – thanks, by the way, almost entirely to their use of Android OS – it’s a good bet he knows what he’s talking about.

    Just FYI: it pays to check your facts before calling BS. For those who practice unabashed, uninformed snarkiness I suggest they stick with FOXNews.com. ;)

    “But the Samsung Galaxy Tab’s relative success shows a demand for the smaller sized”

    Only trouble is, that while Samsung built and shipped lots of these things, consumers failed to actually buy them. Sell-out has been estimated to be less than 5%. So if this is the basis of your thesis:

    “Expect Android tablet adoption to generally follow the path of Android handset adoption with a somewhat less aggressive growth curve because the iPad is broadly available unlike its sibling the iPhone.”

    Simply needs to be re-evaluated. Likewise, the iPhone is “broadly available”.

    In case anyone was wondering, Samsung’s CEO was originally reported as saying that the sales were “quite small”, when the actual words were “quite smooth”.

    However, she continued, ” We believe, as the introduction of new device, it was required to have consumers invest in the device. So therefore, even though sell-out wasn’t as fast as we expected, we still believe sell-out was quite OK.”

    Doesn’t sound good. I consider myself an Android fan, but I don’t like the sound of “OK”.

    ["Sell-in" means "sales to retailers", while "sell-out" "sales to consumers"].

    I just got my Galaxy Tab ( I know….didn’t wait for the new release). I love it! Best thing I ever did. I use it for business as a real estate broker. Because it has Adobe Flash on it…I have full access to my MLS, offer-writing software and other business tools. The only thing it doesn’t work with is my Docusign, but I can view in it…just can’t create the digital signatures. Love it….now I”m going to get a phone which just answers the phone and this fits in my purse.
