The answer to the question, at least regarding web usage, is that only the iPad has a significant web browser usage, according to Chitika. According to their analysis, for every 100 iPads browsing the web, only 1.3 of the next largest competitor (Samsung Galaxy) is browsing.
Going forward the competition is going to be hard pressed to find a way to overthrow the seemingly omnipotent Apple. Not only do they offer a great product they have the undying devotion of their enthusiasts. Thus far Apple’s iPad offering has been able to thwart any attempt by competitors to develop a rival (or even equivalent product). Apple produces a product that is both aesthetically pleasing and technologically robust.
