So why are they going the iOS only route? Most drawing tablets, if not proprietary, run android.

Wondering if it's part of Apple desperately trying to hang on to the "Macs are your only option for art" thing. It would explain their ipad composer ads, too.

Yes, that's at least part of it. Apple really wants to hand on to their art-geek roots, even though most high-end animation and VFX is done in windows and Linux.

Because nobody does anything on Android tablets. All companies that track usage statistics prove this. I wonder if those gazillion Android tablets are nothing more than door stops or TV remote controls, because they're not showing up anywhere (like Internet browsing, for example).

Yup, nobody does drawing on Android tablets. Nobody has bought a Tegra Note to use as a sketchpad.

Ok, all sarcasm aside, I got a HP Slate 7 Extreme... (HP's Tegra Note) for just that use.

If someone was really serious about a drawing tablet, they wouldn't use an iPad, they would be using this http://cintiqcompanion.wacom.com/CintiqCompanionHybrid/en/ or something similar.

Most people 'really serious about drawing' use a sketchpad, and a wacom tablet with their PC or laptop... or a Surface Pro... the surface pro 1 and 2 use Wacom technology to provide a perfectly good drawing tablet at half the price of a Wacom Companion.
