Android (GOOG) may now claim a larger share of U.S. smartphone users than iOS (AAPL), but comScore estimates iOS still has a larger overall installed base, thanks to the iPad. Moreover, the iPad is estimated to account for 97.2% of all tablet Web traffic in the U.S.

    iPad traffic will diminish over time as well. Apple will lose that race too with everything being closed to Apple. Apple only runs on apply, google/android will run on every other product for the most part.

    Apple's tablet dominance is due to patent litigation, one of its new strong suits. Apple's increased dominance in PC/Tablets is making its systems a more profitable target to security exploits. Jobs' death and Apple's lack of open-source development is causing the dev/hacker community to turn towards Android and Linux as more viable options. This is leading to an increasing amount of security exploits being released to the public for iOS and MacOS. AAPL is the new MSFT. There is an increasing trend of revealing Apple hacks at hacker conventions, such as DEF CON (https://www.defcon.org/), as well as exploit sites like http://bit.ly/pYowqo.
