10 Promising Non-Apple iPad Tablets to Hit Store Shelves In 2011

by Don Reisinger
In 2010, the tablet space was dominated by a single company: Apple. The firm's iPad was the most recognizable and worthwhile tablet in the space. The vast majority of consumers realized that it was better than any other device on the market. Admittedly, it wasn't a difficult decision. The Dell Streak featured a 5-inch display and an outdated version of Android. The JooJoo tablet came from an unknown company with a short past. Samsung's Galaxy Tab, while arguably the best iPad alternative, was running Android 2.2, which Google itself said wasn't ready for tablets. But 2011 will be a different story altogether. The iPad will continue to be the tablet to beat this year, but several companies, including LG, Acer and Motorola, among others, will be entering the space this year. Any one of them could very well deliver an experience that customers had been hoping for last year. Those who are interested in learning a bit more about those tablets should click through the following slides. The upcoming tablets won't carry the Apple logo, but they could be the best alternatives to the iPad for any customer.
