The Trouble With Android Tablets

Anyone else frustrated with the mediocre tablet market in the Android world?

With phones, people get excited, and they’re weighing the pros and cons of one flagship vs another. I can’t even remember the last time I saw someone look forward to the release of an Android tablet.

The Nexus 9 seemed like it was going to be killer, but it was plagued with poor build-quality and performance issues. The Nexus 7 line was inexplicably killed after being the most successful Nexus device ever.

And then you’ve got Samsung with an absurdly large variety of release-them-and-forget-about-them Galaxy Tabs.

Are we going to see a resurgence of tablets in Android? I know the Pixel C is on the horizon, but that device seems too large and niche to really appeal to an average tablet user.

For me, I think I basically just want to see a refreshed Nexus 9 without all the issues.

Interesting replies at that reddit thread.

Makes me think there will be iPad as the sole remaining tablet.

Not that that isn’t happening right now anyway.
