As to the Nexus 7 and KF HD models, those set the bar for the 199 buck point. The only down side I see is the same issues we have that were always there. The recurring one is the user that thinks they can use this instead for a laptop (Windows or Apple.)
The Windows 8 Slate is going to have to deliver something that only Microsoft can deliver. Office. The window may be closing fast on that but it is the one thing they have in their favor and it's up to them to make it happen.
-> There is an issue about service, repair and support for these tablets. So far, those areas look like a disaster zone.
It seems we're seeing some stagnation in the market right now, with fewer new tablets being introduced. I'm excluding the no-name cheapies.
Anyhow, what's on the horizon? Are we going to be overwhelmed by Win8 tablets? Are we going to be seeing some Android tablets come to market to take-on/one-up the Google Nexus 7?
In short, what are we seeing coming and what trends are we seeing poised to be introduced?
