Manufacturers of tablets and convertibles currently rely more on Windows 10 operating system instead of Android. Samsung even released the first Galaxy device with Windows and Lenovo's Yoga series is also getting narrower.

At CES, there was a significant tablet trend has been away from Android. Samsung's product presentation went without a single Android device vonstatten. And Lenovo's lineup was the Yoga Tab 3 Pro only one Android tablet, but that you knew from the IFA, 2015.
A Galaxy device without Android? Was not there yet. And now that's changing: Samsung introduced the first Windows-based Galaxy tablet before. Jumps in minute 6 of the following videos to present the Samsung Galaxy S TabPro, the first Galaxy device without Android. Here you come to all Samsung concepts at CES 2016th
Only Huawei remains faithful to Android and introduced at CES 2016 with the MediaPad M2 a potent iPad Pro opponents before. But what reason not to use Android as a tablet operating system?
Windows 10 conquered the tablet market
It looks like Microsoft is winning the battle for the tablet market. Is Windows 10 as inferior to the better tablet operating system Android and him? Even now, Windows is installed on 10 200 million computers. And the spread will increase even more abruptly with the automatic upgrade.
Windows 10 is uniform in its approach on personal computers, tablets and smartphones. It puts across devices on the same surface, you can always log on as a user with the same login information and apps, contacts, and settings are synchronized across all devices. A common cloud service combines those data as well as your photo albums, documents and all personal rest.
This all sounds pretty much according to what Google provides us with Android and Google Drive. However, Google still missing user base in the desktop segment. While almost everyone uses at his computer, the Google search as a research tool and a great many are signed in to Gmail, but running on the computers usually Windows, OS X or Linux.
Microsoft hit in 2012 with Windows RT for the first time the bridge between Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 and thus between desktop and mobile. What was not immediately plausible step for end users, was a very important support for programmers. For now they could develop for both platforms in one go applications. Unfortunately, it would take years before they did this really masse.The Galaxy TabPro S is the first Windows-Galaxy. / © Samsung
Gradually, Microsoft has optimized its surfaces and the ecosystem continues to improve. Meanwhile, the main apps of the (Google) Play store in the Windows Store are available. The integration of services is recognized by more and more users as useful.
Because if they set up new Windows devices, the complete system configured after the first login with their Microsoft ID as if by magic (Internet connection required). Also photos, documents and so on are synchronized without manual copying. This is convenient and every user becomes immediately as added value. Android can not keep up.
Saddled Samsung, Lenovo and Co. to now?
And this is where put on brands like Samsung, Lenovo and Co.. As they have several Windows devices in the portfolio in the form of laptops, a Windows tablet, or even better a Windows Convertible fits better into the picture as an Android device.
Most Samsung or Lenovo customers cry Android afterwards no tears. Because of Google's compulsion for app updates, and sought integration of tablets with desktop systems stand a good user experience in the way.
Microsoft has with Windows bonus of familiarity and thus promotes active. And in the first Hands-on the system is also just fine on tablets; whether by touch or keyboard and touchpad / mouse. So I can understand the step by Samsung and Lenovo. What will happen to Android as a tablet operating system now, to me, however, is a mystery. Perhaps the next Google will provide clarity as I / O conference us.
What's your feeling? Android will get as a tablet system nor the curve or Microsoft is now on the rise? And would you mourn tablet market is a Android loose or Android had no chance anyway in this market?
