    There's no tablet market. There's an ipad market. It's a fad that will die off and is pretty much an item for hipsters.

    But being hipster is too mainstream for me so tablets aren't a good use of my money.

    Anyway, 30 months? Sounds plausible... but in 30months Apple will have new gimmick which will be selling like mad....

    Seems like a fair assessment.

    They probably are correct.

    But iPads having a down turn and Apple loosing money because of it is not mutually exclusive.

    It just means market growth and more choice, which is good for everyone.

    +1 red :D

    For now I think tablets have only few usages e.g. entertainment (read videos or games etc.) or casual surfing; so unless there is drastic improvement in the quality/power of the offerings I am not sure they are anything but fad.

    Apart from one fact which Jen forgot to made, Tegra isn't the leading SoC, and likes of Samsung is already developing their on SoCs (and only need nVidia for now because they don't have ability to manufacture them fast enough) + LG is also working on something similar. Take these two large cell/mobile computing giants out of the equation, and I think nVidia's life won't be that rosy.
  12. I like how android can't even surpass the apples iPad. Apple only has 2 tablets. Tech one because the iPad 2 is just an upgrade from the first. And android has atleast over 15 types of android tablets. And yet apple is destroying the tablet market. Yes android is getting better, but by looking at the differences. Android isn't looking good at all.
