    Here comes the competition

    Last year the iPad pretty much had the entire playing field to itself. None of the major manufacturers had a real tablet made to compete on form and functionality with the iPad.

    CES is wrapping up this week, and it is pretty clear that Apple's not going to be running unopposed. Several of the big hardware manufacturers are going to be aiming directly at Apple's market space.

    The Best New Tablet

    I suspect that while 2010 was supposed to be the "year of the tablet," 2011 will in fact by "The Year of the Tablet."

    Sad thing for the competition tho is....as usual, Apple released an awesome, next level device right out of the gate. These new tablets are mostly problem ridden with laggy performance and some are pointer based OS's that are really annoying to use with your finger. Also, while the first gen competitor tablets are now being released the iPad 2 is on it's way. Also by the end of the year, maybe, probably, hopefully, a MacPad!

    2010 was "The year of the iPad (with a couple other crappy tablets thrown in)"

    2011 will be "The year of the tablet"

    So, if those tablets are so good, why didn't they build them before Apple?

    Ummmmmmmmmmmmm. What?

    Did you even look at the link?

    These are all CES launched tablets, which means they aren't even out yet, and most haven't even had a live display demo. Yet, somehow, you know that they are all "problem ridden and laggy?" Is your name Nostradamus? Are you Mayan? Do you have a super cool crystal ball?

    I don't often bring out the word "fanboy" but damn man, you are cutting down these products completely before they are even out which is something only a diehard fanboy would do. A lot of people did that with the iPad too, and look how far that went.

    Just by hardware specs alone, these tablets will completely destroy the performance of the iPad. Now the iPad 2, who knows what will come of it. Maybe a minor upgrade here and there, maybe something much bigger.

    Wow, time to chill the F out. I have seen some demos and they have looked like crap so far.

    Show me the live demos that you saw of one of these running Android 3.0

    I would really like to see it.

    Because there was no market. Apple created the market, so of course they were first out. First to market doesn't always = best.

    Give it time, these will start rolling out reportedly in late February. After that we will be inundated with more comparisons and head-to-head shootouts with "X" Android 3.0 tablet vs iPad (or iPad 2 depending when it comes out). Only then will we really be able to say who comes out on top.

    But even if one wins in a review, will it really change your opinion on the iPad? The iPad 2 could win every single head to head review against the Motorola Xoom and I will still buy the Xoom because I like Android's user interface and expandability options much better. There are also people who would do the same for the iPad.

    I agree with you Bike.....I think though that I saw a video of the Motorola one somewhere....I will see if I can find it.

    Think this is it.
