Tablets are one of hottest-selling devices on the market today. Exhibit A is Apple who’s iPad dominates the market. In fact, in yesterday’s earnings call, Apple CEO Tim Cook said he agreed with analysts that the market so far has been mainly an iPad market than anything else. Apple said it sold a record 15.43 million iPads in its most recent quarter, a 111% increase over the same quarter a year ago.
But competitors, led by a variety of Android-based devices, are starting to get some traction. Amazon, for one, says it has sold “millions” of Kindle Fire tablets since its release last November. And the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month featured an array of new tablet entrants.
