LAS VEGAS—Tablets were anointed as the star of the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show even before the curtain opened on the show here. Estimates of the total number of tablets being introduced or previewed here range from 25 to more than 50.
Less than a year after Apple Inc. completely redefined the tablet category with the introduction of the iPad, the promised slew of competing products is officially here. Here's a list of six tablets generating buzz on the show floor.
Intel Corp. is showing off a Samsung tablet called Gloria, which features a 10-inch touch screen and a slide out keyboard. The Gloria, which runs Windows 7, is said to be set for release sometime this spring.
I found the Notion Ink tablet really interesting. Unique mix of Sunlight readable E-ink type display & DualCore Tegra 2 CPU.
BTW I have recently tried Ziio tablet in a Creative store. Its was very laggy and had resistive touch screen. Felt like a device from 2005. I dont know why creative bothered to put out this device to market.
