It is one thing for you to get your chocolate in my peanut butter. After all, they are two great tastes that taste great together. But what happens when Windows and Android dance the Watusi? Who are the people clamoring for the Frankenstein notebook? Are these actually two great tastes? Do they actually taste great together, making a whole that is better than the sum of its parts? Because more manufacturers will be putting out these products this year, we are going to be finding out real soon.
A few days ago, I ran across an interesting report from IDC regarding mobile gaming. In particular, it provided a breakdown of mobile devices on which people preferred to buy and play games. Allow me to eliminate the drama. People love using iPods touch, iPhones, and iPads for gaming. But that's not the interesting part.
I just wanted to give you a little taste of what passes for the Android tablet market. It is no-name, Chinese knock-off, copies of copies of copies. To misquote an old parable, it's copies all the way down. More to the point, it is utter junk, destined only for land-fills. You can pick these up at Walmart for a song, or $79, whichever you happen to have.
