Posted on September 5, 2010

The IFA show had revealed several Android tablets which many viewed it as a challenger to Apple’s iPad. We now have Android tablets with screen sizes ranging from 4.3 inch to 10 inch. Buyers are now spoilt for choice. Will these tablets make any headway against Apple iPad ? At least in the next 6 months, I do not think so as these tablets are as fragmented as the Android smartphones. Unlike the smartphones, eyes would be glued on the present apps compatibility with the bigger screens. Redevelopment of apps especially games, graphic related programs, readers to match the bigger screens will be a crucial factor that would determine its sales.
