For every Android power tablet sold, Apple sells 24. Why is the iPad much more popular than Android tablet?

Apple is absolutely dominating Android in the tablet market.

John Gruber at Daring Fireball did a quick analysis and came to the conclusion that Apple has sold 24 iPads for every Android-power tablet sold.

How did he get there?

He took a look at the Android Developer dashboard and saw that 0.9% of Android devices have screens over 7 inches, which is the size of a tablet. He then multiplied that by 135 million, the number of Android devices out there according to CEO Larry Page. That number is 1.22 million Android tablets. Jay Yarow/Business Insider.
