In the frenzy to post about iPad, I thought it would be useful to report that on Amazon.com’s most popular list, the top 3 are
- Kindle Fire,
- ASUS Transformer, and
- Samsung Galaxy Tab.
You have to get to fourth spot and a price cut to see iPad2. Chuckle. There are reasons for that. The world does not owe Apple a living. Apple has to compete on price/performance to maintain prominence in IT. Apple has the price but not the price/performance that people seek. In 2011, iPad did very well, but in Q4 2011, dropped to around 50% share from the good old days of 2010 when they were around 80% of the units shipped in the tablet market.
