Google Getting Serious About Tablets

It’s no secret that, in the tablet world, Apple is beating the pants off of Google. And as Android chief Andy Rubin pointed out at MWC 2012, it’s not hard to see why. Apple fans in search of a tablet don’t have a decision to make, they just buy an iPad. Buying an Android tablet isn’t anywhere near that straightforward.

And then there’s the issue of apps – specifically the lack thereof. There aren’t a whole lot of quality applications for Android tablets, and while Rubin doesn’t seem to think that’s a big concern, it most definitely is. He’s right in saying that Android’s wide reach over devices makes it a little difficult to create compatible apps, but they still need to be created.

Rubin almost dumped it all in the laps of the developers, which probably isn’t the road he should be taking. But he did admit that Google’s inferior sales numbers makes it a less exciting prospect than developing for the iPad, saying that the company needs to make it more enticing to developers.
