I’m pretty sure Walmart is giving Android Police a holiday traffic surge.

You know what’s weird / interesting / a little sad? On Christmas day, I’m sitting here looking at Android Police’s live traffic figures (that’s sad in and of itself, I guess), but there’s an absolutely massive surge in the number of people on our “Download latest Play Store version X” articles. Most of the traffic is from the US.

I thought about this for a moment, and then did a query for “android tablet” on Walmart’s website, and sorted by best-selling. The top three sellers are all super-cheap off-brand tablets without the Play Store (and by cheap, I mean $80-120). There are an additional 6 such tablets in the top 16.

So a bunch of people probably got a bunch of crappy not-really-legit Android tablets for Christmas, and they’re downloading the Play Store. Tablet fever must be reaching epidemic proportions.

eBay better prepare for the incoming onslaught of lightly used 7″ coasters.
