@ezep "... but with the free stuff we get from the pre-oreders ($25 play store card, movie, and not sure what else) I am okay with it."
Hate to tell you, butGoogle Play pre-orders are not scheduled to receive anything more than what other buyers get. Customers buying at brick-and-mortar retail outlets qualify for exactly the same package of perks -- soon as they activate their new tablets, they get the free movie, store credit, etc..

@msnight04 Wow, between your misreading of the facts and this article's misleading (:ahem: link-bait :ahem:) title, it's hard to know where to begin.
A. "Reading the article though, it states that Android has lost market share since this time last year."
This article says no such thing. The writer specifies that the 'itty bitty two tenths of a point' drop took place between March and April of *this* year.
He mentions nothing specific about Android's market share during 2011, tho' he does make a somewhat offhand, generalized reference to 'Android’s massive growth over the last year'...in other words, suggesting this drop in share is the first over that period of time. (n.b.: I'm not saying that's true -- merely trying to clarify the point.)
B. "In reality, that chart should have never been placed in this article."
The chart is a verbatim portion of ComScore's report. And unless you can provide solid reason to question their figures, this chart is perfectly apt to the discussion of current, per-platform market share. Any confusion about it's veracity or value here would appear to be your own.
