Android 30%

Android tablets now have 30% market share

Android tablets sure have come a long way since last year. Back in Q2 of 2010, Android only held 2.9% of the tablet market. Now they have made the jump all the way up to 30%, second only to the iPad which has a firm grip on 61.3% of the market.

The original Galaxy Tab started this trend and now the Galaxy Tab 10.1v, Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy Tab 8.9 and more are going to bring Android tablets to the number one spot.

3.2 Update

Don’t worry about Honeycomb 3.2

The Honeycomb 3.2 update is starting to pop up on US Wi-Fi Xooms and it does not seem to be very feature packed. Of course the update finally allows microSD card compatibility for the Xooms, but what does it bring to the table for the rest of us? Not much. The only thing that I have been able to find is the zoom to fill option for non-tablet apps.

Why do I say not to worry about it? The answer is simple. Galaxy Tab 10.1 owners probably will not see the update for several months, but you need not worry because the update is hardly worth a full .1 version number. I honestly hope the Samsung does not bother with Honeycomb 3.2 and focuses solely on getting Ice Cream Sandwich out as soon as they can. I know it is wishful thinking, but we could see an Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) update by Christmas.

What do you think? Are you bummed we will not be seeing 3.2 for some time? Do you think that we actually will? Do not care? Let us know in the comments or on the forums.

TouchWiz

Italian Galaxy Tab 10.1 shipping with TouchWiz UX, US update imminent?

Samsung released the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Italy a few days ago and TouchWiz UX was already installed on the tablets. The US release is due out any day now. I for one and checking for System Updates daily.

There is a video walkthrough of an Italian Galaxy Tab 10.1 with TouchWiz UX after the break. It looks just as snappy as sock Honeycomb (some things look even faster!).

What do you think of TouchWiz UX? Let us know in the comments or on the forums.
