Is the iPad Losing Its Edge?

In the following video, Motley Fool senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker discusses some market research numbers regarding Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) iPad market share in terms of its corporate and business consumers. He notes that while iOS device activation was up by several percentage points, Google's (NASDAQ: GOOGL  ) Android platform was up as well, which has led some to suggest that Apple's market share is slipping in this market. Eric gives investors several things to consider regarding why that may not be the case and why Apple could have a lot of very positive catalysts ahead in this space.

There's no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded with over 1,000% gains. However, after the company's 35% backslide since September, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. The Motley Fool's senior technology analyst and managing bureau chief, Eric Bleeker, is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple and what opportunities are left for the company (and your portfolio) going forward.

    Apple isn't going to open up it's OS to other phone mfgs., they would have to charge money for that, and there isn't enough money charging for a mobile OS.
