44.6 million tablets to ship in 2011

Written by Fudzilla staff

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.

However, Apple interim CEO Tim Cook doesn’t appear overly concerned. He described scaled-up smartphones as bizarre and dismissed current Android tablets as uncompetitive. Cook believes currently available Android tablets use obsolete operating systems that are not intended for tablets. He did not have kind words about upcoming Androids either, describing them as vapor.

"Generally they lack performance specs, they lack prices, they lack timing, and so today they're vapor. We'll assess them as they come out, wherever, but we're not sitting still, and we have a huge first mover advantage,” said Cook.

I don't believe in tablets, PCs have to be universal for me (capable of doing everything) and the majority of stuff requires keyboards and the onscreen keyboards just aren't practical enough, although I did see that Inspiron Duo netbook by Dell that flips the screen and closes so it can be used as a tablet, very cool concept, even from dell

Apple’s Cook should be Apple’s Crook. The charges on the ipads and phones are insaine, yet people buy them!! The charge 3x as more for the hardware as other companies do.
