Does Apple allow the Amazon MP3 app now? I don't think Apple allows any apps that replicate "native functionality".

Since I've commented in here a bit I'll share this...

I was told we were getting iPhone's last week at work, turns out we got HTC Inspire 4G's (cause ATT gave them to us for free) instead. I freaking love it, and while I don't think it's as good as an iPhone, if I were buying with my own money I'd buy the HTC.

That doesn't change my mind on iPad's though, I'm still buying one of those...but color me intrigued about rooting a Nook Color.

Looks like IDC has predicted the iPhone will settle into that 15% share I predicted... there is NO reason to believe that the iPad won't follow suit.

Yes there is a difference between phones and tablets... but if your replace the term "carriers" with "manufacturers"... the same market forces should cause the same results.

I recommend Jenga HD for iPad. Sounds like a silly concept on a tablet, but it's actually lots of fun. They did a really good job with it.

The iPhone is one device. Everyone else has dozens of devices. If there's another individual device that outsells the iPhone, I'd love to see it.

What an odd statement. It's the exact mirror image of "The Macintosh is one device. Everyone else (IBM clones) has dozens of devices. If there's another individual device that outsells the Mac, I'd love to see it."

I'd assume the Galaxy S has smoked the iPhone on sales, but I don't care enough to google it.

I don't think you are getting the point here... you have some pretty serious Apple fanboi tunnel-vision going on.

The point is... a bunch of you said the iPhone will always dominate the market ... etc etc and a bunch of us predicted it would follow the path that MACs did and end up at 15%... well, we were right. Now the exact same thing is going to happen with iPads.

The only market that Apple will hold a share higher than 20% in is the MP3 player market.. a market that is quickly going away entirely.

In Apple's defense, they are perfectly happy to sit at 15% and make scads of money.

On a side note, the predicted jump in Windows Mobile phones is striking. I wouldn't have thought that the Nokia partnership would have made THAT big of a difference, but I guess we'll see.

I had Windows phone before I bought my Droid. Biggest POS I've ever owned.

It does appear that they have vastly improved.

They basically are counting on all the Symbian users to go with Windows because of it... I wouldn't be too surprised. Nokia has a huge market in Europe.

I agree with you on the smartphone aspect here, and I've not argued such about phones. But I still disagree with the tablet market. If Apple ever drops below 50% in the tablet market in the next few years, I'll be very surprised. Despite tablet app or specification differences, Apple's rep and marketing is too strong to slip to a bunch of Android devices for quite some time.

Regarding the smartphone development, I did find this site, which I thought laid out smartphone development pretty well. It does indeed support your claims for the smartphone market, and predicts that Android market will have more apps than App Store market by mid-2012.

https://www.mylookout.com/appgenome/

But as it stands, I don't find the tablet market directly comparable to the smartphone market. Not yet at least. In a few years, maybe.... But as of a month ago, Android market only had 16 available apps specifically designed for Honeycomb tablets, which weren't a blown-up version of a smartphone app. EDIT: Looks like it's went up a few:

I agree. I have no idea how they're projecting such a surge in the Windows corner. I haven't seen that kind of difference at all from my experience with Windows7 phones.
