Today one of my friends told me that he’s so dissapointed because there’s no post about Sony new tablet in our Site. Brian, this is for you man :)
Sony revealed Tuesday two Google Android-based touchscreen tablets, which will released this fall in an attempt to catch up to Apple’s year-long head start with the iPad.
Since you can’t beat ‘em, sue ‘em – that’s the advice from one analyst to Motorola Mobility, who calls the Motorola XOOM a failure, Honeycomb “dead on arrival” and the Android Market “a disaster.” Global Equities’ Trip Chowdry throws out a hugely-ranging estimate for the number of XOOM tablets sold – between 15,000 and 120,000, he reckons – and suggests that, Fortune reports, rather than attempt to compete with Apple and RIM, Motorola should aim to pick off its Android OEM counterparts with patent lawsuits.
So, after all the bad reviews and the tear-down, how are consumers reacting to RIM’s PlayBook tablet as an iPad alternative? The device sold between 45,000 and 50,000 on its first day, two analyst have publicly stated. However other observers (which preferred to remain unnamed) see the figures as too high, especially given its limited availability and exposure.
