Non-Honeycomb Android tablets sell well-ish

Galaxy-tab-3

Google's Android operating system has been widely adopted for use in a lot of different devices, including phones, tablets, you name it. However, that doesn't always mean that whatever runs Android is always popular. And that's most noticeable in the tablet category.

Only 34% of the world's tablet sales ran Android, and that's all of the Android tablets combined. While that may be good news for Google, it really sucks to be one of Google's many partners and having to share a percentage of that percent.

Another interesting note is the fact that non-Honeycomb tablets sold better than those that ran the latest version. We can assume that's because of Honeycomb's somewhat rocky start and limited availability in both hardware and software, but IDC thinks that things will get better for that version.
