At CES tablets were clearly the big thing. which is great for us, our phoenix platform publishes well to the devices, and they are really good for the publishing industry.
I hear great things about the playbook and others, but to be honest the iPad will remain on top for the next 18 months. Other tablets always bang on about how their device is an iPad killer, which really just establishes the iPad as the leading device.
The key issue with many of the devices is the size. I am not sure why they didn’t go with the same or similar dimensions as the iPad. Maybe they are trying to be different. The problem is that many of those devices are too small for a good experience but still too big to be truly portable.
The biggest a device can be, for a man at least is the size the iPhone is. Anything in between iPhone size and iPad size is no mans land in my opinion…
