      Bestselling Tablet PC - Which is more profitable iPad or Android

      I have been thinking of selling PC tablets online. There is the Ipad which has been selling well till now, but I think its Android rivals are really taking off.

      Which do you think would be best to start selling?

      Thanks

      Honestly, it depends what side you look at it from. Overall, the Apple iPad has been on the market longer and has a great operating system backing it up. The iPad offers many more apps and games than the Andriod does. Many think that the iPad has taken such a lead that no other company could possibly catch up with it. It is also:

      ● Mature, stable and popular.

      ● Has come out with a second, upgraded version.

      ● Features apps that are specifically made for its own device.

      So, that means the iPad is definitely more profitable than the Android?

      Although some iPad enthusiasts including you say that Android does not and will never compare, others disagree. They say that although the iPad is most popular now, Android is taking the edge for a number of reasons.

      1. Spacetime Studios, the creator of a popular app games, has reported that they are gaining 50-60 percent more profits from Android than from the iPad.

      2. Apple has paid $2 billion to developers, while Android has only paid $100,000.

      3. There are a smaller number of competing apps available on Android as compared to the iPad. In this case, iPad’s variety is making it lose to its competitors.

      Because of this rise in numbers, Spacetime Studios and other developers who are seeing profits rise for the same reasons are focusing their attention more and more on Android and less and less on the iPad.

      I agree that Android is on its way in to beat out the iPad. Some people are even predicting that Apple will repeat history and go into a decline.

      Everyone remembers the battle between Microsoft and Apple and how the latter faded into the background, only to appear years later as a technology and innovation giant. It is when a company is ruling the roost, so to speak, that it tends to make mistakes that contribute to a fall. This theory is supported by the fact that the iPad supports a closed operating system.

      An open operating system such as the Android hosts, on the other hand, sports many benefits:

      1. Better prices: Since Android came second, it could copy the apps and features of the iPad and sell them at a competitive price. This will be especially true when Apple does not have a grip on the screen manufacturing industry and Android can get theirs more easily.

      2. Customizable features: Apple iPads are not easily customizable and soon an Android version will be coming out that offers 4G speeds, which the iPad will barely keep up with.

      Hope these posts have helped you sort through the opinions and proof out there on the competition between the iPad and Android!

      Hi Market987,

      Try using Terapaek to see which is doing best on eBay. This will give you an even better understanding of the sales of both Ipads and Android hosts.

      Good luck

      Might as well dip your ink in both, no? I like the Android mostly because it's the cool platform and apple products are for hipsters who like to over pay lol.
