Two more tablets in an already crowded market.
Losing out to the iPad
Even though the application store for Android devices running the 'Honeycomb' version of the operating system optimised for tablets is better than the one for the Playbook, it is still slim pickings compared to the iTunes application store. That said, Google's in-house applications, particularly the ones for Gmail and Google Talk, are brilliant. The Xoom does highlight that the latest generation of Android tablets are very close to the iPad in terms of performance and, potentially, applications. But since it costs as much as or even a bit more than the iPad, it loses out, at least right now, to the Apple tablet.
