Nvidia CEO Believes Android Will Overtake Apple in Tablet Space Within Three Years
May 17, 2011 1:45 PM –
At the Reuters’ Global Technology Summit, Jen-Hsun Huang, the one who’s made some pretty earth-shattering allegations over there, Nvidia’s founder and CEO, said that the tablet market for the next two and a half years will mirror what has happened in the smartphone space in the past two and a half years, at least in the Apple vs. Google fight.
He was saying that Apple’s product (iPhone then, iPad now) gets an early start, great sales and amazing market share numbers. But, slowly, but surely, competition mounts from the Android corner, and, in about two and a half years, Android becomes number one for tablets. An important thing to note here is the focus on just Apple vs. Google. There are differing opinions on the time frame he cited, but, overall, the consensus that Google will very quickly overtake Apple in the tablet space seems to be very widespread.
