Around a year or two ago, the tablet PC market was considered to be, almost like a black hole for devices. It never really took off. Then Apple decided they were going to put a product into it, all of a sudden, that market is now booming.

We have seen a range of products and it doesn’t look as if the market is going to stop. The Samsung Galaxy Tab has done considerably well, although the Apple iPad is still by far the market leader. Of course there are a few innovative designs that will be showcased at the CES 2011 event, which is just around the corner.
