According to the study by the Pew Internet & American Life Project, the growth in tablet ownership has tremendously increased over the past year.
52% of them own an iPad while 48% own an Android based device.
The 52% market share of Apple’s iPad fell down from the previous year when it had 80% of the share. Android on the other hand continues to chomp down on the latter’s lead as the 15% market share of the previous year rose to 48%.
It is good to keep in mind that this study was made before Google released their Nexus 7 and Amazon’s Kindle Fire, so it is good to speculate that Android’s market share will still rise in the next few months.
The study also showed that the Kindle Fire is the most popular Android tablet, holding 21% of the market share of the 48% it’s holding.
Amongst mobile phone operating systems, 46% of American adults currently run on the Android OS, followed by iOS with 38%. Research In Motion’s BlackBerry only holds 10% of the share.
