With 80 percent of the market share presently controlled by iPad devices, it’s very hard to imagine that Android might be a sustainable threat, but it is. Apple has been very successful with it closed business model handing the software and hardware in house. Android takes a different approach in letting the software be open source and depends of a open source following to progress it forward. When it comes down to the tablet war, which will win long term? Android tablets like the Motorola Xoom will eventually beat out the iPad2 because of upgradeability, flexibility, no flash integration.
When you buy an apple iPad2, you are basically lock into that device. Upgrading anything like more ram is not possible but with the Android devices like Motorola Xoom it is possible via an expansion slot.
With the addition of widgets, better notifications, and voice commands and translations, Android offers more flexibility than the IPad2.
No Flash Integration
Like it or not, Flash is here to stay. Not acknowledging Flash’s existence is a gamble on Apple Hands. Adoption to HTML 5 standards are slow and there are a lot of sites and games still done in flash.
