So what does all this iPad information say about the future of tablets? It tells me that Android tablets may get a little breathing room. We saw at CES that there are a lot of Android tablets coming that have 1080p displays and quad-core processors. They are also getting sleeker. If the tablet manufacturers can keep prices down on these devices they might just be able to get a leg up and start swinging market share to their side. If Apple fails to match one spec category of the new tablets you can bet marketers will jump all over it.
Hopefully this will be the beggining of the tablet market diversification which will be good for all consumers as it should help drive prices down as companies compete for sales.
