Over the same period of time, Android tablets jumped from a 2.9% share to a 30% share last quarter. “According to market research firm Strategy Analytics’ latest report, Windows-powered media tablets owned 4.6% of the global market in the second quarter of 2011.“, the post from BGR says.

I really, really hope that Microsoft is launching Windows 8 (beta) soon – and it better look damn nice.
