iPad On Top for Long?
An article from cnn.com takes a look at all of the different companies that are going to start releasing tablets in the near future. The main advantage Apple has over the rest of the market is all of the apps they have in their app store. They really aren't any father ahead of the other companies as far as technology is concerned. This gives hope that maybe with time some companies can gain consumers for their tablets once the android market starts to fill up with apps. One of the big things that a lot of companies are trying to capitalize on is 3-D technology. This could be a huge feature that Apple has decide to not include with their newly released iPad 2. I think this is a great idea since the idea of making so many different devices support 3-D right now is so big. the demand for 3-D is very high and this may draw a lot of consumers since some companies even talk about being able to hook the phone up to a TV, and being able to watch 3-D TV with 3-D glasses that are given to the consumer with the phone. Ideas like this are great ideas, but I still don't think that any of the companies will overtake Apple in the tablet market. Apple always seems to be one step ahead of their competition. They always know what's in high demand, and they never seem to let what other companies are doing bother them. Now that other companies have caught up to Apple in the technology department, it seems like they may have a fighting chance. I don't see Apple being knocked off anytime soon. People feel safe when they buy an Apple product. They know that they're getting a solid product with a lot of great features from an established company. Just having that Apple brand name on the back of their products is enough for some consumers to look at the product and decide to buy it over other products. Apple is just such an established company, that it's going to take more than just some different features to knock them off the top of the tablet market.
