Apple has too much of a first-mover advantage and brand strength with the iPad (how many millions have they sold already?) for any other product to catch up with it, let alone mount a serious challenge (much as their iPod did in the digital player market.)
Sure, newer models will have other features and offerings, but I can't see them making serious inroads into Apple's market share. Right now Apple is like the marathon runner who already started while everyone else was still in the changing room, with the next three runners jostling for second, third and fourth place. In other words, the others will only have a chance if Apple stumbles and in a big way.
How many supposed iPhone "killers" have they released now? LOL. Just not going to happen in the near future
I am a RIM fan and have used blackberry phones forever. The reason I bought an iPad, knowing there are others coming out, was because of the apps. Yes I can get some apps for my BB phone, but nothing like the library of apps available for the iPad/iPhone..
Doesn't something have to exist to be considered an anything killer?
