Business Insider talked with Piper Jaffey’s Gene Munster who had this to say:

“Ultimately, we think that Apple won’t have the majority of the (tablet) market share. It’ll probably be with Android-based tablets.”

He also said component reports out of China and Taiwan that Apple is gearing up to sell 45 million iPads for the next year are “a little bit aggressive.” He sees a more realistic figure falling in the 20-25 million range.

Interesting words from the guy who usually has AAPL about $100 higher than the rest of Wall St. Is Mr. Munster trying to “temper” enthusiasm for this week’s earnings call?
