When it comes to the electronics and gadgets we buy a bunch of them are made by the same companies in China no matter the brand on the device. Compal is the second largest maker of electronics in the world for all sorts of makers and devices.

The company expects to ship about 3.8 million tablet devices this year reports BusinessWeek and of that number the firm thinks 90% will have two things in common. Those commonalities will be ARM processors and the Android OS.

Compal will ship some of the other tablets with Windows OS for ARM processors and does not count those units in the forecast. It’s no surprise that Android and ARM tablets will be on the market in droves this year and they will slowly eat away at the market share of the iPad.
