    Yeah, kind of like what happened with the iPod. Remember how it only lead market share for about a year or so? Wait a minute... I don't think that's how it went, did it? The iPad will lead the market a whole lot longer than you think. Until the Android market is fully embraced by developers and can effectively compete with the App Store, the iPad will continue to have a healthy lead. Just my prediction.

    Not trying to argue cause I did ask what other people thought but I think my post didn't clearly say what I meant. I just meant 95% market share is way too dominating and it is so early in mainstream tablets. I think the ipad will probably outsell any one particular tablet for years and years to come, but when you have a large amount of tablets running android and only ipads running ios the os dominance will even out closer to android then 9.5/10. Android has come a long way I hear. I've only played with them two or three times in a verizon store and they seem so laggy to me but they are open source so they are spread out over more devices.

    The sword game isn't released yet it was going to be called project sword but the final name was just announced "infinity sword"

    I think it'll be really cool if the iPad gets a retina screen though the images would have to be so big

    Very interesting. I wonder how the smartphone dominance would have been if Apple would have had it open carrier from the start. I imagine the percent would be the same as the iPad. Now that AT&T will no longer be exclusive and with the app store booming I can see some android users crossing over. With apple currently pushing the limits and leading tech they may overwhelm the market with the I5. I just hope MS gets out of their rut so we can have some good competition. Just like in sports you play as good as your competition. If the tech world gives apple a run for it's money the tech world will put out some amazing products and continue to strive for perfection. Going to get interesting next year that's for sure.

    "Apple has solidified its early lead in the tablet sales war"

    Thats because Steve Jobs can see the future. He's proven it a few times.

    i honelsty dont like the ipad its basically a computer with an apple ipod OS
    Its not an iPod OS. Its iOS. Same OS across all iDevices.

    Sooner or later the ipad will fall behind in sales to other os on tablets for the mere fct of overpopulation. Apple will always have it's fanboys buyin the stuff but when thirty new android devices pop up per month like what happened with cell phones they will have a good bit of the marketshare albeit across different devices and different companies, Sony samsung hp. How long do people reallistically think the insane dominance will last? I say this time next year apple will still be in the lead but numbers will be closer to say iPhone v droid v rim and the others.
    when the ipad starts falling behind on sales than boom they release the second gen ipad

    Infinity Blade. And lol, yeah they'd have to be 20" images. And seeing as how every app comes bundled with UI images for the regular, Retina, AND iPad display when it's a universal app, I don't want the iPad to get Retina for selfish reasons.

    First someone will have to come out with a decent tablet. Then more importantly they will put a commercial on about every 8 seconds telling everyone how magical it is. That's the real key to success. Flashy words.
    Is that why you buy the products you buy? Some of us are a bit more discerning.
