If the Apple tablet emerges evidently, this will be another big device market, following media players and smartphones on the market, that the PC field cedes to Apple. Tablet: Is this the best WinTel-HP is capable of doing? (Credit: Hewlett-Packard) The writing is already on the wall undoubtedly for Microsoft and mobile phone handsets, as spelled out in a previous post and when documented in shrinking economy share numbers. That's not to say that Microsoft, Compaq (later Hewlett-Packard), and Intel didn't have a chance. Remember the Compaq iPAQ PDA that debuted way back in 2000, powered by an Intel StrongARM chip running an early version of Windows Cellular? That device had a lot of potential. The operative word being "potential. " An iPAQ could have been an iPhone. Or at the very least an iPod. And everybody could be drooling over iPAQs today in lieu of iPhones. Or using iPAQs instead of BlackBerrys. But of course things didn't produce that way. Fast send to 2010 (January? ). Apple announces a tablet in addition to suddenly everyone wants your tablet. (Or iSlate, if you will. ) Whatever happened to this Intel-powered Asus MID? (Credit: Asus) And what have Microsoft, Intel, HP, and others been offering while in the interim years when they every opportunity to come out with a blockbuster supplement? Unattractive, bulky, half-baked convertible laptops that, let's put it with this, have not taken a PC market by tornado. <! --INFOLINKS_OFF-->

So, here's the $64, 000 question, uh, make that this $64 billion question. Why can't the combined R&amp; D smarts, market clout, and overall technological resources of Microsoft-Intel-HP-Dell come up with a thin, sexy compelling tablet and/or media pad that will turn heads and get the unbelievers (the average why-would-I-need-something-like-that consumer) than a tablet is a must-have unit? Answer: Because Apple will. Here's a not unexpected scenario. Apple brings available the tablet/media pad, wows U. S. (and world? ) consumers, sells a ton involving units, Microsoft-Intel-HP-Dell follow suit having slavishly copied devices that don't sell very well comparatively. iPAQ PDAs: Missed opportunity? (Credit: Hewlett-Packard) That's how the market for successful newfangled devices works lately. Apple creates the market and all others follows in a press the panic button. Then there's the Intel issue. Intel also wants to be a player in this space or room. But Intel and it has the coterie of PC makers can't log off the traditional-design laptop gravy show. Plus, as formidable a chipmaker as Intel is definitely, it is still lurking behind the Qualcomms and Texas Instruments of the world in building this power-efficient system-on-a-chip silicon that switches into smartphones and will likely go into tablets. So, here's this question for Intel et ing: How many people will be buying Netbooks or Intel-based MIDs (mobile The web devices) in 2011 if Apple incorporates a more compelling alternative? Answer: a lot less if the Apple tablet exists. OLPC tablet concept: Can't a PC maker do this? (Credit: OLPC) And add Asia-based machine makers offering tablets using an Nvidia Tegra 2 chip fot it. A number of these tablets are anticipated too in 2010. In fact, Nvidia is already doing what Intel should have finished doing a long time ago: make a competitive vertisements ystem-on-a-chip that powers compact devices. Intel had the chance to make XScale (what StrongARM finally became) into something significant for small devices six issue. But it didn't. And now Intel is trying for you to reinvent the wheel by simply squeezing the upcoming "Moorestown" Atom snack into smartphones. Intel, I'm sure you think Moorestown is a great idea, but it's a little bit late. Apple beat you to it by about three years. Resource: 1.
