>>High prices and a lack of content
Why should low price suddenly cure content? If Google are struggling with Android 3 for content (as the article seems to suggest), then why would cheap unbranded crap from the Far East do any better? If anything it means more fragmentation.
However, the author fails to understand that purchase of the bit of kit is only half the battle, its the user continuing to use the kit long after it's been bought is the key number, and Apple have that in the bag totally.
Cheap crap will simply be the dog bought for Christmas. There will be no need for high level content as it'll soon be abandoned.
If these tablets aren't running Android, then it'll be fragmentation at it's worse. Fail. Poor article.
