Thanks, Rich. 

Yes, that is something that is good to notice. Most of the time there is a reason why one product is more expensive than the other, i.e. an Apple tablet vs. and Android tablet, apps is one of those reasons-

Rich, 

Yes. I am more familiar with iOS apps, and for that I can speak of the quality of them. Adeniji said that Android has more apps, and more free apps, and that was one of the reasons people buy them more. I say it's a matter of price. What is your experience after having sold both?

Edit: Yay! This is the first comment on EBN in 2013. :)

Adeniji, 

I don't know if Android OS has more apps than iOS, or the quality of them. I do know, though, that iOS has plenty of quality apps (250.000?), many of which are free. Once again I am going to tell than quantity is nothing without quality.

Adeniji, I don't think any importance in that. They already implemented various measures to protect the IP rights and integrity. But I think it can give a good impact to US economy because the currency is rotating in US market with in a loop.

Bolaji, that's interesting. So far I though majority of sales and revenue are from different US states and Canada. But in most of the Asian countries and China, Apple products are not so popular and Samsung products are so common in market.

Good point Bolaji,

Many people are begining to embrace the android devices and then the android devices are offering more for less. This is a major source of advert for android devices, for example you could get an android phone with so many applications and even features like tethering for less than $65.

Susan, There are numerous devices that measure up to the iPad and may even be better. Many don't know this but Apple's No. ranking in tablet PCs is being challenged by Samsung and it would most likely be surpassed by Android devices in the next few years.

@susan, yes, I believe lower price is a reason, other reasons are good battery life and that android OS seems to have more and free applications than iOS.

Adeniji, 

Samsung tablets seem to be coming up strong, and competitive. However, to what would you attribute "more users", to lower price?

@Susan,

Well, some of the other tablets I have seen, Samsung galaxy tab 2 seems to be close to Ipad and it has more users too.
