Note that: 1. This doesn't mean share of the total userbase. It means share of the tablets shipped in Q2. Some of those tablets, like the sole QNX (Playbook) tablet, will likely not even be shipping again next quarter. 2. In Q2, demand far exceeded supply for the iPad 2, so that some of the iPad numbers will eventually show up in Q3 once those waiting actually get their units. 2. Since iPad demand exceeds supply, all shipped units actually go to customers. Many of the competing shipments go to store inventory and never actually end up (or remain) in the hands of users. All this is to say to take the numbers with a grain of salt. Of course Apple's share will drop, since any competitor means an automatic drop from near 100%. However, I think the actual loss of share, in the hands of users, is likely to be less than stated and will partially rebound in Q3.

Interesting that in the airport, out of 10 people who had a tablet, all of them were iPads...

This article is about shipped tablets. Not sold. Million Android tablets collect dust in the stores at the same time Apple can't manufacture enough Ipad2. This also leads to some good Android tablets bargains. I have seen Android tablets 60% of retail price.

You mean to say that in the market that Apple created and therefore started off with 100% market share, their share has since dropped???? Amazing!
