the tablet market is something we recognize as an important one and it is also the market that mainstream is driving towards
i read two articles and was blown away by the numbers and how quickly the computer market is shifting
By the end of this year, Android will be in more devices than the next four competitors combined (Windows, iOS, Mac OS, and BlackBerry). Before the end of this decade, Android will be in nearly as many devices as all other operating systems combined. David Nagel (link to his article)
that quote is a bit speculative when it mentions where we will be at the end of this decade but the forecast for the end of this year, a mere 8 months away, is probably spot on
adding to Android becoming the most prolific operating system is the decline in the PC market. the graph below shows that better than i could explain and another article by David Nagel talks about it in detail

Lumiya is being worked on continually by Alina Lyvette and the latest update has added the ability to create objects and take them into your inventory
