The Middle Ground on Android Tablets:
Only one [tablet optimised feature] remains in Android Lollipop: the ‘UI Framework for creating great tablet apps’ that was released in 3.0. Now, the default Android home-screen has literally no tablet optimised elements, everything acts the exact same as if it would on a smartphone, just larger.
I’m not sure if it is the lack of interest in Android tablets that keeps developers from producing tablet apps in line with their iPad counterparts, but if the platform is to improve Google need to lead with example; right now they’re doing the opposite.
iPad sales are falling, however, so maybe letting Android tablets die is not as sad as it may first appear.
