    iPadís Lead Continues to Grow, as Other Tablets Falter


    AppleInsider reports today on new figures from Chitika that show that Appleís iPad has just seen its first increase in web traffic since last December, with iPads now making up 81.9% of US and Canadian tablet web traffic. This reverses the trend show in Februaryís figures from Chitika, whereby the iPadís web traffic share had a small drop, from 81% to 80.5%. Also back in February, Amazonís Kindle Fire, Samsungís Galaxy Tab, Googleís Nexus and Microsoftís Surface tablet all showed small increases in web traffic for the December through to February period, leading some commentators at the time to venture that the tablet market could be becoming more competitive. These latest figures, however, have overturned that trend, and Chitika says that Amazon, Samsung, Google and Microsoft are all either flat or dropping, when compared to figures from the previous month. In fact, AppleInsider notes that Appleís iPadís lead grew by more than the Surface, Xoom, Nexus, Kindle Fire and all of the Galaxy tablets together.

    No surprise here at all. Apple just seems to far ahead when it comes to tablets. Not so much with phones, but with tablets it doesn't even seem close. I was never an apple guy but I won't even consider any other kind of tablet when I'm ready to upgrade. The iPad is just a few features away from the perfect tablet. It's close now....

    To me, the Samsung tablets are pricey for what you get...but the Nexus 10 is a good tablet...but I should not recommend it because compared to iPad, the tablet apps on Android are all but nonexistent. To me, it's the apps that make the tablet. I think the same is true in the phone space and that's a large part of why Apple can't dominate that space (which is a good thing). The other factor is the phone space just moves so fast and if you only release one phone per year, there is no way you are going to rule the roost, more so when there are plenty of apps for your competition to have put on their devices.

    Even though I have a beef with HTC, that new superphone of theirs might draw me off to a new phone come October (a new phone that I don't really need, btw).

    My real problem is what to do with iPad. Get the iPad 5 full-sized or the mini 2? That is going to be a hard one there. I don't see myself getting another android tablet any time in this decade.

    BTW, I hope Apple never changes the screen shape on the iPads. 4:3 works very well with photography.

    This quote right here sums up my feelings on the screen. Do NOT go to 16:9. Just don't do it. Th iPad just works better in 4:3 mode!

    At this point, I own more Android tabs than I do iPads, but I do about 90 percent of my browsing on iPads.

    I have three 7" tabs on which I do no browsing, because I use them only for books, movies and audiobooks. When I Web browse, I generally prefer a full-size tablet. The exceptions are when I'm on the go and am just carrying my 5" android phablet, in which case I'm usually just looking up something on the fly. In those cases, my browsing is limited, because I find my answer and I'm done.

    Lol. Love my Android phone -- a Samsung Galaxy Note 5" phablet. I switched after three generations of iPhone. I also have a 7" Galaxy tab and two Kindle Fire HDs, which also work well. If given a choice of a free phone now, I'd want the latest Galaxy Note 5."

    What do you think of the galaxy note 8 tablet? It's supposed to compete with the iPad mini, I'm guessing due to its size.

    It looks really good to me, but I've not bought because I'm going to buy an iPad mini 2 (if specs are good, including retina). I'd rather have the mini because I could transfer my AT&T grandfathered unlimited data plan from my full-size iPad.
