Apple’s Cook dismisses competition
According to IDC beancounters, the market will swallow up 44.6 million tablets in 2011.

This is roughly 2.5 times more than in 2010 and Apple’s iPad is expected to lead the charge. The iPad still accounts for most of the tablet market, but CES announcements of several Android could make a difference later in the year.
