A year from now the iPad may have serious competition, but right now it’s the best tablet computer there is. Personally, the Macalope’s glad he doesn’t have to wait a year.
The above quote comes after discussing a few iPad “competitors”, which are easily dismissed not as competitors, but simply weak tablets.
It’s a fact that not every device introduced to market has valid competition immediately. The iPad is such a device. Cheap knock-off alternatives will be available, but, as I concluded a week ago, we’re looking at maybe a year.
