Final paragraph of an Android tablet market snapshot by Simson Garfinkel
I can't recommend the FlatPad--there are just too many problems. But I increasingly suspect that other planned iPad competitors won't be able to replicate Apple's success, either. The iPad isn't simply an integrated hardware/software. Its premium hardware--a really great screen, the world's best touch pad, premium sound--all leveraging an integrated software platform and Web store that Apple has spent years refining. Android tablets don't just have Apple's head start to overcome. They also have to overcome structural problems with the Android platform that Apple's integrated approach avoids.
