Kirpus predicts 2010 will be the year of the web tablet
The Scandinavian/US magazine publisher Bonnier gives a more detailed idea of the lay out and user interface (UI) with Mag+.
"But what is the fuzz about" - you ask?
If you are a frequent reader of newspapers, magazines, RSS feeds, social media updates or newsletters - this trend is going to include you too. Because this time the content providers are prepared, able and willing to pitch in - like Time Inc [See link]. Time Inc. and others might enter the market with a subscription plan, like 3g and cell net providers. I believe they all learned something from the music & movie industries battle against on-line media.
As blogged about by Buzz Beast the Apple iTablet is just one device to push the market forward. Here you see a picture of the JooJoo tablet (see video links below) and how about the Microsoft Courier tablet?
Kirpus throws an Google web tablet on top of the others. The Google tablet will enter the market at a low price and Google OS - with all it's own features, apps and adds.
In 2012 the web tablets will become a mega-trend and the iTablet is going to penetrate and change the market so much faster than the iPod!
You are going to want this, it's only a matter of the price tag.
