Sorry Warren. I beg to differ with you again. Did you read AppleInsider story? Granted, it's preliminary info. But it's still interesting to say the least.

the growth of the tablet market is unprecedented. The total sales of mobile phones in 2010 was about 400m. There might be about 20% growth. But if tablet sales hit around 60m then it is nearly 1/7th of the total mobile phone sale!

Blackberry will definitely dent the Ipad stronghold. Slowly but surely, RIM are getting their act together and I would bet on it to give apple a fight in this market.

What I have learned form this article is that I should wait to buy an iPad until the iPad 2 comes out. Why consider any of the "me-too" tablet makers when Apple does such a great job on products like this?

The hardware, industrial design and performance are no doubt important. Among all, I believe the infrastructure, such as the apps store and the number of apps, is the key piece for the success in the tablet market. With this said, iPad 2 will stay popular for a while. The market will become more diversify as the other competitive products are rolling out this year.

Are they really easy to use? Or is it the wow factor that drives away all doubts regarding the user friebdliness? In all of Apple products, I identify a few lacking features that any other vendor wouldnt be able to get away with.

Seriously, you are asking that question in conext of this article? What did we learn here in this article? The iPad 2 will have a display, it will have DRAM and NAND flash and, oh yeah, it will have a Cortex-A9 dual core processor running at 1.2GHz. One meaningful fact. Yes, we did also learn that Apple has locked in long term supplier contracts - but no surprise there.

Of course the iPad 2 looks like another winner. In order for it not to be, they would have to have not paid attention at all to current customers and potential buyers, and that would be very uncharacteristic of Apple. Despite being very secretive about what they are doing, they nevertheless seem very customer oriented, as evidenced by the ease of use of their products.

Apple will win because no other company tries to compete on hardware or design. They all are trying to copy Apple's business model as best they can. And by that I mean overcharging for cheap components. If you charge anywhere near what Apple is charging for their device you need to have an extremely compelling reason for people to buy it. I have been waiting for a non Apple tablet to pique my interest, but they all seem to be lacking. Perhaps years and years of building my own PCs has made me extremely picky. Microsoft, though late to the party, can make a tablet solution that gains traction in business if they are willing to partner with hardware devs to define a full product. Given their recent track record, I doubt they can pull it off, but once Windows comes out for ARM, anything can happen.

Does Apple's iPad 2 look like another winner-or not? How about the tablets from Moto, RIMM, Samsung and the rest? Who will win the tablet wars?
