I think Gartner is way off on this one, like by two-fold. In my opinion.

BTW, your link references your own blog, not Gartner's research.

tablet computing

there are many options for tablet computing.

apple product such as Ipad makes tables poplar.

there are many options such as Android (linux) tabets on the market for under $100 ( yes I said under a hundred bucks.. ) go check ebay thats a prime example..

Android has already overtaken the asia market putting products such as Iphone into second place..

Most mobile computing, and would also include items such as tablets.

Android Linux is the Defacto Standard in the industry... that is the way it will be going.

Apple makes a poplar product, but its apple's way...

Android is open, and has already beed adopted into a variety of applications and devices.

What year do you disagree with, 2010?
No, the 2011 prediction. 2010 should be pretty easy to extrapolate at this point.

OUt of curiosity, do e-readers like Kindle fall into this category? If so, then the 2011 prediction is a lot more believable.

No I don't, I was hoping you did. I'd like to read the research.

@murraykj, I don't think this is quite the case yet, with lots of vendors saying they are forgoing Froyo and waiting for Honeycomb release of Android (summer '11). That makes it a bit tougher for Android since the Apple marketing machine will be waist deep in iPad 2.0 by then. I hope it comes sooner, though. I can't wait to see competition in this space heat up, and these two OS makers are the only two in the game at this point.

Do you think Chromium might play a bigger role than Android?
