The Making of Tablet Product Life Cycle
Since the iPad launch of 2010, people have fallen into 3 categories
1. Those who buy tablets because they want or need them
2. Those who don’t buy tablets because they don’t want or need them
3. Those who don’t buy tablets because of one or more barriers preventing them from doing so
It’s this third group that is the target of every tablet maker. Tearing down the barriers is their key to success. For some, it’s price. Now Google, Apple, and everyone else is looking at the success of the Kindle Fire and looking for a way to duplicate the model.
There has been a question about functionality and power, but the latest generation of tablets are often more powerful than laptops from just a few years ago and more are going to be powered by quad-core processors in 2012.
