Ever since the iPad debuted, e-readers were thought to be a dying breed with Amazon's Kindle on the preemptive attack with commercials touting its glare-free e-ink display as opposed to the iPad's glossy screen.

Sure, the iPad has 82% Market Share, But Will it Last?

It's no secret that the iPad is the most popular tablet out there right now. But the key words there are "right now". The iPad had a year's head start, and created the current tablet market that so many others are now rushing to join. A survey by the Nielsen company this spring shows that the iPad has an 82% market share of tablets in the U.S. 43% of iPad owners have the 3G version, and 39% have the Wi-Fi only tablet. The closest competitor was the Samsung Galaxy Tab, though it's hard to call 4% "close". No doubt the iPad is a great tablet. We on SlashGear have called it the best on the market.

T-Mobile G-Slate Review

2011 may be the year of the tablet, but so far only one Android 3.0 Honeycomb (review) example has managed to reach the market. Motorola's XOOM was criticized for launching perhaps before Honeycomb was quite ready; now the T-Mobile G-Slate by LG is making its own play, with the dual hope that 3D photography and an 8.9-inch screen will be enough to carve a niche against the iPad 2. Is Honeycomb's second hurrah the cry of victory or a dying gasp? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut to find out.

PC Market Not Looking Pretty for Q1 2011

Research firms Gartner and IDC have come out with their quarterly look at the PC market in the US and worldwide. With some exceptions, the results are not good. Only three companies, Lenovo, Apple, and to a lesser extent, Toshiba, posted gains for PC sales in Q1. The two reports differ on how large the decline in the total market is, and also on the cause.
