Does Apple drive the tablet market, or ASUS?

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?

ASUS Transformer 2 with double pixel resolution teased for MWC

A video has just been released this week by ASUS for the Mobile World Congress 2012 release of a brand new tablet with "twice the detail, twice the fun." We must assume, of course, that this is not the same tablet we saw at CES 2012 in the Transformer Prime 700 series, instead we're banking on the idea that it's an upgrade for the original Transformer - this being less expensive and slightly less powerful than the Prime for more reasons than one. This would play into ASUS' plan for a two-tiered system of tablets where one is a premium model and the other is for the slightly more average consumer.
