So, how was your Tablet Tuesday? With Apple, Microsoft and Nokia all announcing new products, including some very cool tablets are you planning on making a switch any time soon? Indeed Apple is killing all the others and dominating the tablet space and there’s no sign of that changing any time soon I’d say. Nokia is trying to chip away at some market-share, however, in all honesty I really don’t see that one going very far but I guess time will tell. The Lumia 2520 windows Tablet is a nice looking piece of hardware but really, how can you possibly compete with Android and iOs in that space? In their defense, the 4G LTE and Wi-Fi connectivity, and 6.7MP camera make it a pretty attractive option – and the red color is a nice touch too! Microsoft has announced the smaller, lighter, and faster Surface2 which is somewhat of a notebook/tablet hybrid and really does chase a different market segment in my mind… no huge numbers for that one in sales either I’m predicting although it is looking pretty good and at $449 not a bad option for the Windoze fans! The Apple products, however, are looking mighty fine as we saw in Apple’s live event.
The new iPad air is down-right sweet and at sub $500 an excellent price point… iPad mini as well is perhaps still the best bang for the buck out there for a tablet in my mind and it just keeps getting better as we now see in iPad mini 2 and the $299 price point – see details of all the new Apple products HERE.
