Does Apple drive the tablet market, or ASUS?

This afternoon the folks at the IDC released quarterly worldwide shipment numbers for tablets, suggesting as they did so that a slump in the market this quarter may be due to Apple's lack of a new iPad. And we got to thinking: it's easy to relate the growth of the tablet industry over the past several years to the iPad - but what can we see if we pinpoint the releases of individual tablets from each of the other top two tablet-making companies to their quarters? Is it the iPad that's driving this growth, or the release of excellent tablet packages by non-Apple companies?

ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7 and FHD 10 tablets get official

ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7 and FHD 10 tablets get official

ASUS has two new mainstream tablets for Computex 2013 this week, and they each bring some interesting differentiators: the MeMo Pad HD 7 has a super-low price tag, kicking off at $129, while the MeMo Pad FHD 10 steps up to a Full HD display and slides in one of Intel's Atom processors. That's relatively unusual for an Android-based tablet, which more commonly would be found powered by an ARM chip (and, indeed, the MeMo Pad HD 7 does have something from ARM's line-up inside).

ASUS teases 6-inch “Note” Transformer tablet for Computex

ASUS teases 6-inch “Note” Transformer tablet for Computex

As Computex approaches, so too do the teasers for devices like this action-figure representation of a device ASUS will be showing off. Here the proof is in the pudding as the letters N6-TE tie in with ASUS common past and the Android toy itself. It begins with the letter N and the toy has the most easily recognizable representation of a pen - this means the device will have a "note" functionality and more than likely a capacitive pen built-in.

ASUS rolls out MeMo Pad 7 Android tablet for $149

ASUS rolls out MeMo Pad 7 Android tablet for $149

If you're in the market for a cheap Android tablet and the Nexus 7 is a bit too expensive, Asus's MeMoPad 7 hit stores today for the low price of $149. A teaser video of the tablet was released back in February, and while it doesn't offer quite the same level of hardware available on slightly more expensive tablets, it will certainly work fine as an ereader and casual browsing slate, or as a device for the kids to use instead of your more expensive devices.

ASUS “ultra-budget” tablet leaked: Nexus 7 redux

ASUS “ultra-budget” tablet leaked: Nexus 7 redux

With the ASUS-made Google Nexus 7 still selling like hotcakes here several months after its initial debut, a second "bargain basement" device appearing this week shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. This device goes by the code name ME371MG and comes with Intel inside instead of the NVIDIA Tegra 3 that comes with the Nexus 7. This means in this case that you'll be seeing a budget-friendly solution without a doubt, processor first.

IDC shows ASUS and Samsung skyrocketing in tablet sales

Though Apple's iPad lineup remains undeniably dominant in tablet PCs globally with a beastly 43.6% market share, IDC is showing that this Q4 2012 both Samsung and ASUS have bashed their previous records for sales to bits.
