On a retail display in a far away electronics superstore the forces of electronic empires prepare for battle.
The upcoming holiday season will see the start of the Tablet Wars. A slew of devices will be showing up along with their associated TV commercials and PR hype. The iPad has already carved out it’s market so the rest of the tablet market is up for grabs.
I’m expecting the next OS update to clean up their sub-par (for Apple anyway) interface. While Apple has only recently reversed their ban on Flash Apps on the iPhone hopefully there’s a path to Flash on the iPad down this path as well. I’m curious to see if Apple will hold the line during the Holiday shopping season when salespeople have to explain that the iPad won’t play Farmville, Hulu, Nickelodeon, etc.
