Android will become the king of the tablet market, stripping the coveted title from Apple's iPad, according to Dell founder and CEO Michael Dell. The claim appears in an interview in today's Wall Street Journal, in which Dell traces the meteoric rise of Android over the past 18 months and predicts that the platform's entrance into the tablet market will achieve similar success. Though Dell can't be considered completely objective (See: Dell Streak and Dell Streak 7) it is reassuring to see some confidence from the CEO of one of the largest computer manufacturers in the world.
Dell says that he doesn't see the shift in dominance coming anytime in the near future, citing huge reported profits from Apple and less-than-stellar sales of the much touted Motorola Xoom. And despite rumors of upcoming Windows 7-powered Dell tablets, Dell has repeatedly made it clear that his company is committed to Android. “I think you'll see... enormous numbers of Android tablets with Dell certainly playing a role in that as well.” [The Wall Street Journal]
