In a blow to Android Samsung confirmed that their future Tablets will be running on Windows 10 rather than Android. Android has not had much success in the Tablets division as much as it has with the Mobile Division. The company’s Tablet market share has been struggling for last 2 years in comparison to Windows Tablet market share.
At MWC, Samsung announced the Galaxy Tab S3 tablet with Android, but more focus was placed on the Windows 10-based Galaxy Book 2-in-1 with 10-inch and 12-inch screens. Samsung’s Eric McCarty, Vice President Mobile Product Marketing announced that 60 percent of the detachable 2-in-1 market will run Windows, and that the company has opportunity for a YOY growth of close to 140 percent.
Windows 10 though has been on a high in the Tablet market and Microsoft needs to sustain this with delivering more finger friendliness and pen interaction with the OS.
