The failure of Android tablet sales is being noticed by major players in the electronics industry as well. Michael Dell, of Dell computers, recently reversed his controversial statement saying that Apple should close up shop due to the fact that Android was going to blow it out of the water in the tablet market. At Dell World 2011 he stated that his company is now looking to Windows to help grow profit share, since sales of Android devices have not been up to expectations. He now likens Android to “another opportunity,” and has obviously lost confidence in Android’s ability to move specialty products produced by Dell. This is a strong indicator of the state of affairs and perception for Android-based tablets. Google should be celebrating the fact that 4.0 is going to sell more handsets — there are some great features that consumers are going to want, for sure — but on the other hand, it should be mourning the fact that it is losing the tablet wars, and badly. I couldn't but agree with most facts in this article, and I think Google will not be able to compete with Apple for a long time to come.
