Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen predicts Android tablets will overtake Apple iPad

Speaking at yesterday’s D9 Conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen predicted that sales of Android-based tablets would overcome iPad sales in the same way that Android phone sales have finally overtaken iPhone sales. You can’t tell it from current Android tablet sales, but who knows what secrets Narayan is carrying around in his head from tablet vendors who actually can offer Flash compatible products. Meanwhile, iPad’s 65,000 dedicated apps give it a huge market lead because, after all, it really is all about the apps in this kind of market. So says the EDA360 philosophy. Tablets are—please excuse the pun—not much more than blank slates.
