Apples and Oranges.

It is quite possible the iPad is an Apple phenomenon which may never be duplicated by other manufacturers. Tablets are really nothing new; Gateway had one back in 2001-2002, as did other manufacturers. True, they were crude by today's standards, but none of them really took off. Fast forward 9-10 years and the iPads are continually sold out. A similar statement could be made about the iPod; not the first mp3 player, but the market has become "iPods" and "everyone else".

Why? Do the iPads fill a niche, are they that much better than the initial round of Android tablets, does Apple just market better, or are Mac users so loyal they'll buy anything that carries the Apple logo?
