Though Apple’s revenue from Apple’s products is 22.36 million more than Android’s (source: ComScore Data), Apple still is getting worried hearing about their tablet market share.
What’s more surprising is that even some of the Android tablet has been slightly priced higher than of the iPad, vendors are not having difficult time in selling them. ABI Research mobile devices group director said, “Many vendors have introduced media tablets, but none are separating themselves from the pack to pose a serious threat to Apple.
