32 Failed 2010 Tablets

Harry McCracken wrote about Whatever Happened to the iPad Rivals of 2010? It examines 32 failed tablet products that think it has a shot against the Apple iPad:

  • Archos 5 (Android 1.6)
  • Archos 7 (Android 1.5)

  • Asus EeePad EP101TC (didn’t ship, but maybe the “Transformer”)
  • Asus EeePC EP121
  • Augen $150 Gentouch78 at k-mart (company site is down for months_
  • Best Buy Rocketfish Tablet
  • Cisco Cius: the June 29, 2010 announced product still has no price or release date.
  • Dell Streak 5″, Discontinued
  • Dell Windows Slate
  • EnTourage eDGe
  • ExoPC Slate
  • Fujitsu Windows Slate
  • Fusion Garage JooJoo
  • HP Windows Slate

  • Lenovo “LePad”
  • MSI WindPad 100 Windows
  • MSI WindPad 110 Android
  • Marvell “Moby” Tablet
  • Motorola-Verizon TV tablet
  • Neofonie WeTab
  • Notion Ink Adam
  • OLPC XO 3.0
  • Onkyo Windows Slate
  • Panasonic Windows Slate

  • Sony Windows Slate
  • “The $35 Indian Tablet” (vaporware, still “available next month”)
  • Toshiba Libretto W100
  • Toshiba Windows Slate

Basically, in August 2010, many companies saw Apple iPad’s success and tried to copy it. The iPad wannabes range from 4.8″ to 11.6″ with Android and Windows.

Over one and a half years later, even after Apple released the second generation iPad 2, some iPad knockoff products are still vaporware, while others are discontinued with product producers going bankrupt. None are successful against the Apple iPad. Read more with the link listed above.

Kindle Fire, you are next.
