The most popular tablet on the market right now is the iPad. The popularity of the tablet had something to do with the fact that the machine was the only tablet around for a while. There are more and more tablets coming to the market each day and many of them will be running Android as an operating system just like the Samsung Galaxy Tab. The Galaxy Tab launched not too long ago and is one of the first major Android tablet offerings to land.


With more and more Android tablets coming to the market, analysts are expecting truly big things from Android in the tablet market. Research firm IMS Research as predicted that by 2011 Android tablets will have 15% of the overall tablet market globally. That percentage of the global tablet market will boom and by 2015, the research firm predicts Android tablets will hold 28% of the tablet market.

The iPad will continue to do very well though and the firm predicts at this time next year the iPad will have as much as 75% of the tablet market. Samsung has big hopes for the Galaxy Tab and expects to move several million units the first few months it is available. IMS predicts that Samsung will move about 4.19 million Galaxy Tabs in Q4 2010.
