Tablet Wars of 2011: The Battle Looms

The iPad rules the tablet world right now, but an Android army has begun its attack. Soon to join the fray are even more tablets, equipped with the Windows, WebOS, and Sugar operating systems. Here's what to expect in the year ahead.

It has been nearly a year since the iPad launched, and manufacturers have been hard at work trying to catch up and compete with Apple's (AAPL) popular tablet device. The closest competitor so far is Samsung's Galaxy Tab--the company recently announced it had sold 1 million Tabs in less than two months.


The future is looking bright for tablets, with major players such as Hewlett-Packard (HPQ), Motorola (MOT), and Research In Motion (RIM) set to release devices in the coming months. Smaller manufacturers such as the India-based startup Notion Ink are also trying to bring tablets to market. Here's a look at some of the tablets available today, as well as some of the anticipated slates set to debut next year.
