While daytime soaps should always intrigue the viewers with drama and plot twists, the same is happening with the market of the tablet PC. Amazon is planning to talk to the press about a new lineup of tablet PCs carrying Android. This will obviously be under Kindle, the company’s well-known brand name. The iPad 3 is still to be heard of, while the fate of the HP TouchPad is now in the hands of CEO Meg Whitman. Whitman was formerly of eBay. The Galaxy Tabs of Samsung continue to be plagued by infringement claims and is suffering from fewer appearances in consumer stores.
Undeniably, Apple’s iPad2 continue to hold the market share in tablets and even the minds of consumers. Since the iPad 2 was just a revamped iPad, people continue to expect an iPad 3 that would change the landscape of tablet computing. A revolutionary iPad 3 would certainly cement the status of dominancy of the iPad, despite the rise of Android based tablets.
Amazon’s new tablet PC is rumoured to a have its own hardware design. Even with relatively no experience in the tablet market, Amazon does have some experience regardingits Kindle eReader devices. The Kindle eBook platform ran on iPad, Android, Mac, PC and others. Whether it’s too late to join the race to produce a tablet PC that is not an iPad is something Amazon will discover in the near future.
The tremendous sales and moral boost garnered from the $99 firesale done by HP has led it to decided to bring its tablet back in the game. But with nil popularity and price tag that is akin to a giveaway, no company could keep up such a stint for so long. But people expect Whitman to do something wonderful with the TouchPad.
Samsung struck back at Apple, trying to get the iPhone banned from the market, the same way the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 7.7 were banned in many countries. Since that move won’t work, Samsung has to figure out a way to design its tech to place them within reach of eager consumers. How quickly and efficiently Samsung can do this would ultimately determine if their products will still find a way into consumers’ hands.
