Android Set To Dominate Tablet Market

The iPad 2 is grabbing column inches galore at the moment, but a new forecast from RBC Capital markets is taking a little of the shine off it already. According to their forecast the tablet market will explode over the next three years growing to some £42 billion by 2014 with Android taking an impressive 40% of the market.

That figure, according to RBC, will put Android in a dominant position in that market. That doesn't mean that Apple will be lagging behind or doing badly by any means as the analysis states "While Apple's iPad may continue to set the bar high for experience, we expect Android to dominate."

The main growth for Android in this amrket will probably come from the Chinese manufacturers who will cut costs to release cheap alternatives to the higher priced tablets being offered from the major manufacturers.
