Tablet Market to Evolve Rapidly in 2011: 10 Reasons Why

by Don Reisinger
In 2010, tablets started making their way into homes and offices around the world. That trend was led mainly by Apple and its iPad, which according to a recent study from IDC captured 87 percent market share during the third quarter of 2010. Apple's device is being chased in the share ranking by a handful of other devices, including the Samsung Galaxy Tab, the Dell Streak and the JooJoo tablet. However, none of those products was able to capture consumer or enterprise attention the way the iPad did. In 2011, that could very well change. Apple's iPad will still be a dominant force, but several new devices will be joining the fray to see if they can steal some of the market share Apple currently controls. Moreover, some of the companies that folks would expect to see compete heavily in the marketplace will have little, if any, showing. Simply put, the tablet market will be a fascinating space to watch for the remainder of 2011. As the year unfolds, there are a number of things that people should know about the rapid evolution of the tablet market. Read on to find out what everyone should know about tablets in 2011.
