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?

RE[2]: I have a need for a tablet

Member since:

What's with this thinking that one needs to lock down everything in order to make usable products ?

One every bike I've ever bought, I could service everything myself, using a relatively standard interface. This characteristic also makes the life of my mechanic easier for stuff which I can't do or don't want to do.

Please explain how this makes bikes hard to use for people who don't want to bother and just see the mechanic each time the chain goes off the gears.

If you can't, please explain how tablets are different from bikes in this area.
