Developer interest in Android tablets is huge, even though none exist yet

A report by Appcelerator published today shows that even though developers are very interested in working with iOS, interest in Android, especially Android tablets, is soaring.  62 percent of those surveyed said they would like to develop apps for Android tablets even though none have been released yet.  Also interesting is the fact that the numbers for Android smartphones remains as high as ever, with 81 percent of developers showing interest.  This is great news all around, as healthy competition among tech products benefits the consumer more than anyone.  Check out the source link to see all the tables and charts, but the bottom line as put by Appcelerator sums it up nicely -- "Apple and Google are now playing chess while everyone else plays catch up."
