PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless 2011 will go down in the history books as a great year for tablets mostly for Apple's iPad however, not all tablet vendors fared as well as Apple. It's not for lack of products that prevented Android tablets from taking any market share away from Apple this year. By our calculation, over 100 tablets were introduced since the iPad however, we defy even the most tech-savvy of you to name more than a few of them. What was so wrong with the competition that it failed to make any inroads in the tablet market, at least until the Amazon Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble Nook came along?

I have a need for a tablet

But None of them are what I want. If I didn't mind being told what I can and can't do with my own property, then I would probably just get whatever's going. I want a tablet that I can install my own OS on, be it Linux, Windows, or whatever. I want to run what I want to run and configure it how I want. If I want java I can install Java, if I want Python I can install Python, if I want .not then I can install .not err I mean .nEt. if I want mplayer well you get the picture. And I want it to be quality at a fair price!

Oh and I don't want Carrier IQ rooted on the thing!

Am I asking too much?
