The iPad is Somewhat Popular

By Brad

Via Read Write Web:

New data from Strategy Analytics out today clearly shows Apple’s dominant position as the leader among tablet PCs - during Q3 2010, the company’s iPad has captured 95% of the global market share for tablets. That leaves everyone else - Windows, Linux, Android, etc. - with only a 5% share, combined.

It’s doubtful that Apple can keep up this dominance, especially with new competition being launched every week. But for now all you can say is…wow.

The Tablet Wars

By Brad

With over a million units sold already, Apple’s iPad is reinvigorating the so-called tablet PC market. And now, as the Wall Street Journal reports, Google is looking to get in on the action with a tablet computer of their own:

Verizon Wireless is working with Google Inc. on a tablet computer, the carrier’s chief executive, Lowell McAdam, said Tuesday, as the company endeavors to catch up with iPad host AT&T Inc. in devices that connect to wireless networks.

The work is part of a deepening relationship between the largest U.S. wireless carrier by subscribers and Google, which has carved out a space in mobile devices with its Android operating system. Verizon Wireless last year heavily promoted the Motorola Droid, which runs Google’s software.

“What do we think the next big wave of opportunities are?” Mr. McAdam said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. “We’re working on tablets together, for example. We’re looking at all the things Google has in its archives that we could put on a tablet to make it a great experience.”
