An unofficial tracker from Shawn Dubrovac has revealed the numerous companies that had some type of tablet computing device at CES, following the massive success of the iPad.
The extensive list details at least 100 tablets and crossover eReaders that have shipped (or are about to ship). From Blackberry’s PlayBook to Motorola’s Xoom, the list reveals the many available “iPad Killers”, but there are also some tablets that the list does not showcase. The tracker list also factors in 24 generic tablets at Freescale’s booth at CES.
At CES, the majority of tablets were running Android OS with others using Linux or Windows.
As noted by Electronista, many of the listed companies were not known to have had plans to develop tablet computers or eReaders until as recent as last year. Their decision to begin developing these devices is widely thought to be reactive to Apple’s iPad.
With the beginning of the year just started and 100+ iPad clones already available, I wonder how many more “iPad Killers” 2011 will bring?
