As Hockey Great Wayne Gretzky once said, "I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been." And in the case of the mobile market, the puck is heading in Android's direction -- not Apple's. Plus, Android customers may be less loyal that Apple's fanatical mobile customers, The VAR Guy believes.
- Tablets: TechCrunch is predicting Google Android tablet sales may overtake iPad sales sometime in 2013. Sure, iPad sales continue to grow. But Google Android tablet sales are growing much faster.
- Smart Phones: Android smart phone sales have been outpacing iPhone sales, and The VAR Guy doubts iPhone 5 will change that reality.
- Apple's customers tend to be fanatically loyal.
- Google Android users, generally speaking, tend to be a bit frustrated with software bugs, iffy product designs, and other problems that crop up when multiple hardware companies try to tweak a common software platform.
