Why hasn't Google done more to promote Android tablet apps? Let the conspiracy theories begin

Why hasn't Google done more to promote Android tablet apps? Let the conspiracy theories begin | Bring back UK Design & Technology | Scoop.it
One of the nice features of Android is that the operating system has built in functions that allow smartphone apps to scale well to many different screen sizes. Since Google can't control the screen size decisions their Android hardware partners create, they needed to make the apps extensible to many different screen sizes. With tablets, however, this has been more of a curse than a blessing.
John Rudkin's insight:

There's some truth in this, but which is it. "The gradually failing Android ecosystem" = Apple's big advantage.
