Apple Poised to Ride Tablet Market Higher – beta.fool.com
Tablets are the new norm.
“The mere mention of tablet computing will, in most, elicit the knee-jerk reaction of praise for Apple’s (NASDAQ: AAPL) iPad. Since the launch of the first version in 2010, the domination of the…”
Apple did much of the work popularizing the concept and how a tablet can improve your life. it also set the standard in weight, size, and dimension, as seen by the fact that many tablets announced or released since the iPad look almost exactly like it.
however, the primary challenge for any competitor is Apple’s incredible efficiency. with iTunes and the ability for users to purchase music, movies, TV shows, and educational content, Apple is giving its customers a one-stop shop. so… buy, download, sync, and take everything with you. if one adds the App Store to that equation, Apple is the epitome of convenience.
Android has long struggled with its need for more tablet-optimized apps. still with an excellent design, good battery life, and low starting price, the Nexus 7 is an inexpensive way to experience the best of the tablet world without breaking the bank.
to be candid, it’s smoking our high-end iPads, and very easy to navigate. Right now I like it better than my iPad.
but, my status as an Apple shareholder aside, I believe this is good. Apple remains the best example of a company that innovates. so, this means they need to push harder, smarter and more efficiently. that’s good for all of us.
peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.
