With the December holidays unfolding and the dawn of 2011 just a few weeks away, news abounded this week about the iPad, NOOKColor and other existing tablets and eReaders, along with intriguing upcoming gadgets, both rumored and real.
On the scene in Taipei at a Computex pre-show press event, TPCR Editor Jamison Cush reported on some of the new gadgets now under development for future years, including the extremely innovative Gigabyte Booktop 1125, a tablet/laptop/desktop PC combo.
In the US, talk ran fast and furious about how the Samung Galaxy Tab, B&N new NOOKColor and RIM PlayBook are starting to fare.
Samsung today announced sales of 1 million Galaxy Tabs already, shortly after Nielsen released a report purporting that only 15% of consumers say they’d rather have the Android-based Tab than an Apple iPad.
While analyst firm ChangeWave dubbed holiday e-reader sales a two-way race between Kindle and Apple's iPad, B&N called the new NOOKColor -- just released in mid-November -- the biggest selling product in company history.
Meanwhile, in a move widely seen as a blow to RIM, JP Morgan decided to give iPads to its investment bankers rather than wait for the BlackBerry PlayBook.
In other news, several vendors (household names included) rolled out (or revealed) new tablets, others updated gadgets with new features, and the industry kept abuzz with rumors about the possible tablet activities of HP and Apple.
