How is that for a link bait / attention grabbing title?

But if you look at what IDC just reported and what Google has reported - it is a title that you can actually justify - even if it is meant tongue in cheek.  

Let me explain how I came to that title.  IDC reported that last quarter Android manufacturers shipped 28.2 Million tablets. 

Google on the other hand when announcing the Nexus 7 (2) showed a chart of All time Android Tablet activations 

The absolute best you can get out of that chart is 14 Million tablets activated last quarter.  That means some 14.2 Million (greater than 50%) Android tablets were not activated - i.e. sold.  

We could have also said Google confirms more iPads were sold last quarter than Android tablets.  Again going with those numbers.  

And if we look at IDC's numbers - for Windows tablets - they have 2 Million Windows tablets for the quarter.  Yet from Microsoft's own 10K report we know at best there have been 1.6 Million Surface tablets sold as of October 2012.  If we went with 500k Windows tablets last quarter plus 14 Mil Android tablets and 200k other.  That would work out to a market share for the iPad of 49.8%.   

This is a far cry from the Link bait - truth twisted headlines we are seeing on the Fandroid sites - 

Here 

Here 

Here 

and 

Here 

In this upside down world where everyone seems to be beating up Apple and misreporting stats from research firms.  I found it really surprising that one of the best breakdown on the numbers per Tablet shipments / sales side, came from a post on an Android site.  HERE 

But again - one has to wonder what happened to those missing 14+ Million Android devices.  Seems lots of shelf space is being taken up by all those unsold Android tablets.  

To put into perspective how many unsold Android tablets there were last quarter - if you took all of them still in their boxes and laid them down end to end - they would stretch from New York city out past Salt Lake City.   Just Sayin.
