>>>>>>I would guess by 2013 Android will be ahead of iOS on tablets, as clearly it's making massive inroads with better and cheaper tablets from more manufacturers
I'm not sure about that. I think with Android you could make an argument that the tablets are better or cheaper. Certainly not better and cheaper.
I thought the 1st gen top end Android tablets were worse than the iPad 1. I played with most of them, and I didn't think Honeycomb was quite finished, and most of them were a bit laggy. Obviously if you hate iOS that's not going to be true, but you'd have to be pretty one-eyed not to be able to admit that the iPad 2 had them beaten. For example I like the old ASUS Transformer, but it doesn't exactly feel like a premium product. None of them were really much cheaper either.
The less said about the £100 Android tablets the better. No problem for geeks, who know what they're doing and can root them, but not something I'd buy for my Mum. Not sure about the Kindle Fire.
Now we have a new Samsung and Transformer, which look nice. I've not had a chance to play, so can't comment on ICS and quality. But they're about the same price as the iPad 3. And more expensive than the iPad 2... If Apple really do bring out an 8" tablet for £300, that could hurt the more expensive Android tabs a lot.
So even if you think iOS is crap, the Android tablets that aren't, barely manage to be cheaper. Oh, and also, you're wrong. iOS isn't crap. You may not like it, but that's not the same thing...
