At first I was ridiculing the IDC for saying 2015 then changing their minds to 2016.

Then I realized it was just a typo.

If this article was posted in 2015, or even 2014, then I would have a bit less of problem with this sillyness. It is only the first quarter of 2012 and they know what will be in four years...really?

I would say this is based off the same idea as the iphone. If you look at the sheer amount of phones out now that are running Android compared to what .. 1 phone running IOS?

And how about the tablet market? How many are running a variation of Android compared to what 1 tablet running IOS?

The problem with the iPad is that it can't expand it is what it is. Android on the other hand has the Transformer, Tab, Touchpad, and all the other various devices out there.

So yes I can see how they say the Android will overtake.
