Ben Bajarin of Creative Strategies has posted an excellent analysis of IDC's tablet forecast we talked about on Tuesday. Mr. Bajarin argued that looking at Android tablet sales as a whole distorts the relative value of the OS, and that one should instead realize that there are multiple Android platforms powered by Google's OS, and that most of those devices don't bring value to Google or have access to Google Play. The chart below was his effort at putting IDC's forecast in perspective. It's a solid analysis and we recommend this as a good read.
