Reports that Apple's iPad lost a big chunk of its market turn out to be premature
[CORRECTION: Samsung's Lee Young-hee was misquoted in the transcript cited by the Wall Street Journal. A tape recording of her remarks show that she was describing the Galaxy Tab's sell out as "quite smooth" not "quite small."]

The iPhone 4 launch doesn't seem to have slowed the growth of the AndroidOS.
Quantcast released its June numbers yesterday, indicating that the Android platform continued to outgrow the other smartphone vendors in web traffic. That's in line with last week's report from comScore.
