I'm agreeing with you that Windows is the dominant market and should be
treated as such.

However, in developing countries Android tablets may be the most accessible
and affordable computing platform of the future. It shouldn't be ignored.

I'd contend the priority should be on the primary platforms:

Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Next should be platforms of the future.

Quoting T. J. Brumfield:

In all fairness, Android tablets could become a large emerging market, but
Windows is still by far the predominant market.

But how many people will use them for heavy-duty word processing,
spreadsheeting and presenting? LO/OO is a heavy-duty package for
heavy-duty work, after all.

I've tried typing on my stepson's iPad (on the couple of occasions
when I've been able to prise it from his grip) and it's hopeless.
OK for Web surfing, short e-mails, etc, but tablet ergonomics are
completely unsuited for serious work. Even laptops are dubious
(nasty keyboards, small screens, etc).
