It’s an old article when android just broke the market, or we called it as “early stage of tablet war”. Now, iPad has more alternate devices to combat with android device, at different size and storage capacity.

Here the new side of tablet war between Apple and android. Instead of comparing the number of shipment that representing the sales rate in a period, we can evaluate with the adoption of operating system (OS) used within tablets.

PC Magazine‘s report revealed interesting facts on mobile OS adoption, that Apple nearly tripled the number of iOS tablets it shipped in the Q2 as compared with the same period in 2010. However, Apple also saw its share of the global tablet OS market drop considerably from the near total dominance.

As some experts predicted on the fast adoption of Google’s android, PC Magazine reported that android was the biggest climber both in terms of global tablet OS units shipped worldwide and tablet OS market share. Android tablets went from 2.9 percent of the worldwide market in the second quarter of 2010 to 30.1 percent in the just-concluded quarter.
