Samsung Galaxy Tab will challenge the iPad  (Source: Samsung)
Android tablets will eat away at iPad dominance

The iPad is dominating the tablet market right now. Much of that market domination is thanks to the fact that there are few tablets on the market for consumers to choose from. The number of tablet options for users will change drastically moving into 2011 when a tablet-specific version of Android hits the market.

Research firm IMS Research forecasts Android tablets will start to eat away at the share of the market held by the iPad. The research firm says Android will eat away at the iPad's market much as Android smartphones have battered the iPhone.

According to IMS Research, Google tablets will hold 15% of the global tablet market in 2011. The research firm believes that by this time next year, the iPad could still hold as much as 75% of the tablet market or more. However, by 2015 Android tablets are predicted to have 28% of the market with as many as 15 different hardware brands fielding Android tablets including industry heavyweights Samsung, Dell, and Motorola.

The company taking the biggest leap into the Android tablet market right now is Samsung. The company has already launched the Galaxy Tab and it expects to sell millions of units during the first months of availability with 4.19 million expected to sell in Q4 2010.

"The availability of Samsung's Galaxy Tab tablet via mobile carriers such as AT&T in the US will quickly boost Google Android's presence in the tablet market," said IMS Research analyst Anna Hunt.





"It looks like the iPhone 4 might be their Vista, and I'm okay with that." -- Microsoft COO Kevin Turner
