We don't need more/cheaper tablets.
I've always paid for top-end phones and laptops, but didn't think I had a place in my life for a tablet.
Start of this year I bought a "£100 android tablet". God I hated that thing. It wasn't 'bad' just every bit of the experience was mildly viler that I wanted. I certainly wasn't going to cough for a 'premium' £500 tablet - but I just lost the will to live when I tried to use that tablet.
Then I got a Nexus7 as a final punt. It's pretty-near perfect - and cheap. Yes there's the Nexus10, S-Pads and the iPad if you want to spend a noticeable chunk of money - but I just can't imagine anybody so price sensitive they'd sacrifice any N7 features to save a few quid.
The gap for 'ultra-low-price' items surely isn't in the world of tablet, it's in the items most people don't know they need yet that's currently filled by dedicated appliances, that would benefit from a bit of underlying Android (or your SSO, IP enabled, OS of choice).
I want the DAB clock radio - with an OS - I can listen to spotify or my Google Reader subscribed Podcasts - I don't want a dock for my phone, I want to not have to put my phone into my clock radio.
I want my STB to maybe flash up a message when I get an email or a txt on my phone and allow me to use my phone as an output screen.
I want a magnetic e-ink screen on my fridge with my calendar for the day, that only needs charging twice a year.
I want a DECT phone, that relays unanswered calls to my house to my mobile over IP (or allowed me to connect from my mobile to my home phone etc).
I guess my point would be that all the underlying gubbins we currently have in tablets is getting ridiculously cheap - but just making every cheaper tablets is quite frankly boring and unnecessary.
