Analyst: Tablet market likely to become Android-controlled

Google Android logoDespite the iPad's current success, Android will eventually control the lion's share of tablet sales, suggests Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster. "Ultimately, we think that Apple won't have the majority of the market share," he tells Business Insider in a new video interview. "It'll probably be with Android-based tablets."

The analyst also takes a skeptical view of sources claiming Apple could sell up to 45 million iPads in 2011, calling the figure "a little bit aggressive." 20 to 25 million is said to be a more realistic number. Apple is however rumored to be working on a 7-inch iPad model, which could mark a change in the pattern of sales, if real.

Even if Android tablets do become dominant, the iPad could still represent the most popular device manufactured by a single company. Android products will eventually be spread amongst several different makers; these include Samsung, LG, Motorola, HTC and others. The only one on the verge of release is the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
