How long did it take Android to reach it's dominate position?

Microsoft launched their Android killer 2 years after Android was released, in the Fall of 2010. It was called Windows Phone. Two years after Android's launch the (then) biggest tech company in the world launched their competing product and wasn't able to make a dent in the market. That was a touch more than 3 years after the iPhone's release.

They even had a funeral for it.

The iPad was launched a little over 2.5 years ago so their response time is getting better at least. The problem is this time around it is Microsoft selling the product for twice the price of the competing Apple/ Android products which is going to make for a rough market.
