Swathes of Android tablets coming our way......
@AntonIvanov, there will be MeeGo tablets that will prob be more open to flashing like the N900 is today.
@Tom38, I think the number of Android tablets overtaking iPads is inevitable for the following two reasons:
(1)Wider distribution - most established mobile device manufacturers are making them (LG, Samsung, Motorola, Dell), so are new entrants to the market like operator-branded ones, computer manufacturers, media companies etc
(2) Price - Apple will sell their product at a very profitable premium to a limited number of people. Android tablets will come in at prices to suit segments that Apple wouldn't bother touching.
That doesn't take anything away from iPad - I love my 32GB 3G
For sure the user experience on Android slates will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and none will likely probably not as polished as Apple's.
They will, however, offer sufficient bang-for-buck and to be a cost-effective alternative and in some cases likley even better ecosystem support depending on which user segment they target.
