After tons of rumors about an iPad 3, what we really got, as you know, was the new iPad. So then will the iPad 3 still arrive sometime in the future?

As it turns out, Google could be looking to be even more aggressive with its pricing for the Nexus Tablet, getting it down as low as $149. That significantly undercuts just about everyone else in the market
Part of the reason why the iPad and iPad 2 continued to dominate the tablet space was that most of the “good” Android tablets cost just as much as their iCounterparts and many people viewed Apple’s tablet as a premium device.

Horwitz believes that the next iPad will come equipped with better cameras, not much of a shocker there since every Apple device that follows its predecessor has a better camera.
As with any other year, 2011 saw the release of all sorts of tech and gadgets. From more mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras to an onslaught of tablets and e-readers, we saw a lot. But what device can be singled out as the most important? Apparently, it’s the 2011 MacBook Air.

rguments of both analysts tend to agree that the openness of Android as its strong point is suddenly nowhere to be found when business and market considerations prevail. Sure, from a business standpoint, it really doesn’t matter what platform and development models are used in a given product: it’s an impact of a product itself that has an importance.

What is the problem with being a favorite brand? You cannot take things for granted, experimentation is not that easy, and the brand image is more prone to public embarrassment!

How about my laptop or netbook? Still no. So what is it good for? Well, that’s the magic of it. It does many things, but it’s not here to step on anyone’s toes.
The name iPad is strangely clever. It probably took Apple an entire 5 minutes to come up with the name. It’s clearly not a notebook computer, and we already have the iBook. How about that other relative, the notepad. Ideas went around, and voila – Apple’s latest thing is the iPad. Names aside, what the heck is this thing good for anyways?
