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?

Where are the numbers?

And more to the point: why are we discussing as facts the musings of a blogger at Retrevo, especially considering that, by their own admission, "The Retrevo Pulse is an ongoing study of people and electronics from the consumer electronics shopping and review site Retrevo.com"?

And no, adding "one of the largest consumer electronics review and shopping sites in the world" shouldn't lend the report any more credibility, since there's nothing scientific about it -- they're not even quoting sales numbers!

Hard numbers would be nice. But I think that if what's mainly a shopping site wants to post some insights on their blog, and those insights are valid (and wouldn't a shopping blog have a worthwhile take on consumer demand?) then it's worth posting.
