    Sometimes it is easy to get tunnel vision living in the United States. We forget that there is a much bigger world out there that appreciates technology just as much, (or more than), we do. Today's news helps illuminate this idea. Apparently, China is Android's number one market, not the US. In fact, one-third of all Android devices sold globally in 2012 went to China, while the US was in second place with just 11%.

    as far as I am concerned, china is the biggest electronic products manufacturers in the world, at the same time, it holds the largest share on consuming. Android is the mainstream, microsoft and windows also try their best to gain more market share.

    Wrong forum for that question. Try the Zeki forum, although there are almost no 10" users there...but the 7" works just the same, so would have the same answers.
