Tablets have been the biggest Vaporware of CES 2010 and possibly will at CES 2011

Tablets have been the vaporware of CES 2010. Companies exhibited mostly prototypes that had no special software or thought through use cases. What we have seen was nothing new. Similar touchscreen computers appeared in different sizes and names over the last couple of years and none established itself on the market. All changed weeks later on January 27th, 2010, when Apple unveiled the iPad, which became one of the fastest selling consumer products of all time. Now one year later CES 2011 is hailed as tablet CES. New, mostly Android based, tablets are popping up already and as the we get closer to the opening of CES we will be swamped by tablet announcements.

Will there be a new tablet that is jumping ahead of the iPad? What we know so far is that the best new tablets will run on NVIDIA Tegra 2 and Google's new Android Honeycomb. Honeycomb is though not official yet and first reports even raise the question if manufacturer will be able to demo it at CES 2011. It also is expected that Honeycomb based tablets are not shipping right away. We look at mid-2011.

If tablet vendors cannot demonstrate Honeycomb and a media and app eco-system similar to what Apple is offering with the iPad at the CES 2011, I will again award tablets the Vaporware award.

Keep in mind that Apple is expected to unveil the iPad 2 in Spring or even earlier.

The CES 2011 opens its doors on January 6th. Get the latest CES 2011 news and highlights in our CES 2011 Hub.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
