A survey conducted by Forrester Research shows that 14 percent of those surveyed plan to buy a tablet within the next 12 months. However, the survey seems to indicate that not all users necessarily want an iPad–some just want a tablet PC.
It's important to note that most of the tablet PCs have yet to see the light of day. We've seen Dell's Streak, which is a 5-inch tablet closer to the size of an iPhone than an iPad. The Joojoo, which is currently available in the US, looks to be a great device, but still hasn't met the kind of sales that the iPad has. Then there is the HP Slate, which is aimed at enterprise as well as their webOS tablet, and finally Google's recently announced tablet. The market is sure to become abundant with these devices, but the iPad is off to a strong start for a device that is only four months old. It's not to say that other tablets can't compete, but the iPad has become synonymous with the tablet computer.
Still, for the most part, we are always asking ourselves where the other tablets are. As we did earlier this month: Here.
