That's fine; I'm no party to the bet. But it's problematic, in my eyes. If I go to China and release a tablet based off of Android 2.3, but with ancient, crap hardware and no access to the Google ecosystem, how do you define that? To me, it's no longer an Android tablet. It's a tablet, based off of Android.

White box computers are completely different from tablets. With computers, you can throw together parts as cheaply as possible, throw on a copy of windows, and sell it to a consumer, and they're part of that ecosystem. With Android, it doesn't work that way.

There are two market share areas I find interesting:

-What ecosystem are people using (iOS, Google experience Android, Amazon Kindle, Windows (lol))?

-And within official Android, what is the market share of the manufacturers?

Beyond that, it's all white noise.
