    Pay the same money for a cutdown OS as you can for the same hardware with a full OS. No thanks. It could have been good for all those casual users that only read email, facebook and play facebook games, but not at the prices they had them at. Then again they will have Android tablets that can provide that same functionality and look like they could be a player in that sector.

    Probably not, I don't see Android having a strong foothold in the tablet market in the near future. Product fragmentation issues aside, problem lies with the 'user experience' part of android, hence, that is why Android have so far failed to give iPad any real competition.

    I think in near future, Kindle Fire (may be) a success simply because it is being sold with just 'good enough' hardware and very very reasonable price.
