2011 Tablet Release Schedule

by Reads (14,679)

Have you had trouble keeping up with details on new devices, like when they’ll be available and how much they’ll cost and which version of Android they’ll be running? Now that tablet season is in full swing there are literally dozens of tablets in the pipeline, and TabletPCReview has compiled a helpful schedule of announced releases through fall 2011.

Having traveled to the depths of the TabletPCReview archives, we’ve emerged with info on more than 35 tablets and developed the following comprehensive list.

Just to briefly describe the formatting/establish a rough legend for this chart: If a field is left blank it means that no information on that detail was available at the time of this writing. If something is in italics, that means it has been rumored, but not confirmed by the manufacturer or some other bona fide source. If you see this symbol ~ in front of a number, it means approximately, and most frequently appears before prices calculated based on exchange rates from a foreign market.

Enough of that; here’s what 2011 looks like:
