Tablet overload could hurt some vendors


Tablet overload could hurt some vendors

Billy MacInnes

The Consumer Electronics Show was awash with tablets this year. According to some reports there were as many as 80 on show at the event, in all shapes and sizes from vendors like Lenovo, Motorola, Dell, RIM, Asus and a host of lesser known companies, all jostling for slice of a market which exploded last year after the launch of Apple's iPad.

Opinion is divided over which of the many products (and there are others to come) have the best chance of being successful.

One likelihood, however, is that just as with their pharmaceutical namesakes, some IT vendors could suffer adverse effects from the tablet overdose in 2011 and wake up with a nasty headache in 2012.
