PCWorld: Where Are All the Android Tablets?

http://www.pcworld.com/article/20134...d_tablets.html

Quote:
The NY Times called 2010 "The Year of the Tablet" but so far, 2010 has been the Year of the iPad. We still have five and a half months for that to change, and hopefully by the end of the year manufacturers will have swamped us in a tsunami of Android tablets in all kinds of shapes and sizes. The tablet computing experience has been everything I hoped it would be, but in order for the format to thrive we need a variety of products to choose from, and I'm not talking about the difference between a 16 GB and a 32 GB iPad. I'm talking about meaningful choice.
I wonder if Google needs to release one-just like they did with the G1 and Nexus One, just to get things really moving.

Didn't Google already bragged about a new tablet being almost ready?

I'd guess a major reason is that the larger players are waiting for the new Tegra 2s and Intel Z6s, as well as OS 2.2.

I have to admit, I thought there would be at least a few contenders out by now..... but still, by Christmas time I bet there will be several good choices....

My experience in the industry as well as a consumer is it takes about 18mo to make a solid product, and that is with using lots of off the self products. It is going to take more than 6mo to produce quality Android tablets and not come to fruition in any less time just because PCWorld made such a bold prediction.

Point is I think next year is when you will be seeing a good amount of Tablets where a few choice ones might start as early as the Holidays.


I think only companies like Apple, Samsung, and HTC could get away with making such a tablet in shorter than 18mo because they have a very similar product to market in the first place.

Samsung's Galaxy Tablet comes to mind and is slated to be released as early as October.
