Gartner says Android tablet sales grew 121 percent last year, Microsoft a distant third

Android tablet sales are on the rise and according to the latest numbers from Gartner, now outsells iOS tablets – so that’s the iPad, then – quite substantially. OK, there’s also plenty more Android tablets on the market that there are iPads, but the growth of 121 percent over 2012 is still staggering.

The tablet growth in 2013 was fueled by the low-end smaller screen tablet market, and first time buyers; this led Android to become the No. 1 tablet operating system (OS), with 62 percent of the market.

That’s a pretty important statement to consider. Apple corrnered the tablet market with the launch of the iPad, but launched its first smaller tablet quite late on – and it wasn’t that hot, either. With affordable Android tablets on sale from the likes of Google, Samsung and Amazon to name but a few, it’s hardly surprising to see the rise of the Android tablet.

Phone? Tablet? No, they’re both

Mobile World Congress

HP was on hand at Mobile World Congress today in Barcelona to show off its new Android smartphones, the Slate Voicetabs. We got a look at both the 6-inch and 7-inch versions that are most definitely part tablet, part smartphone. Both have earpieces, large displays and make phone calls.

Neither are particularly groundbreaking. The Slate 7 has a 1200×800 resolution display while the Slate 6 has a slightly better 720p panel. Both contain 1.2GHz quad-core CPU’s, 1GB of RAM, 5MP rear camera and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. HP says KitKat will be pushed out to both, but didn’t say how soon.

Tablet, or phone, or both? We’ll know soon enough.

Mobile World Congress

Sony has posted a short teaser for their Mobile World Congress event, telling us we’ll get to see “something extraordinary” on February 24. 

We’ve seen the Xperia Z2 leaked, and plenty of leaks and tips of the new Z2 tablet are out there, so either or both is a safe bet. Both look quite nice, and should do well with the growing number of Sony Android fans out there.

Whatever it is, you know we’ll be there live to check it out when they give the world the first look. Keep it locked on AC for everything Mobile World Congress!

More: Preregister for info from Sony
