I personally think that this years will be the year of Tablet and phone battle. There are rumour saying that netbook and notebook are not selling well since. After Apple’s iPhone and iPad, it appears Android devices could be the quickest to mass market, but the expected onslaught of products from all comers in the first half of 2011 means distributors are rushing to make sure they have the right relationships, trained sales and technical resources and a strong overall strategy to support the burgeoning demand.
With a flurry of Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets set to hit the market any day now, the currently reigning Android tablet, Samsung Galaxy Tab, certainly has its days at the top numbered. These include the Motorola Xoom, Notion Ink Adam, ASUS Android line-up and the T-Mobile G-Slate.
Another Dell product which is Streak 7 tablet, whose price not yet disclosed, boasts of a seven-inch multi-touch screen, a dual core 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, 1.3MP front-facing camera, rear-facing 5 MP camera and weighs 450 grams. Dell said the new tablet is its first 4G tablet to take full advantage of US wireless carrier T-Mobile’s 4G network, the nation’s largest.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab is probably the most successful Android tablet on the market today. The Galaxy Tab currently runs Android 2.2 Froyo and has a 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor, front and rear-facing cameras, 3G and WiFi connectivity, and the ability to function as a mobile hotspot. The US version of the Tab doesn’t make cellular phone calls, but you can always install Skype to make calls on the go.
If Android wants to get its foot in the door then the time is now, before they fall behind again and it takes years to catch up. More and more manufactures are unveiling plans for tablets and the vast majority are choosing Android. So what do you think?
