First of all, could we get a show of hands of those of you who have actually heard of the Galaxy Tab? Secondly, could we maybe have the computer guys sit down with the car guys and have a chat about naming your products?
On one hand, we have products named after a moment in time occuring just twice every year, when the sun crosses the plane of the earth’s equator and day and night are of equal length. Epic, right? Or how about a sharp hooked claw attached to a bird of prey. Of course we are talking about the the Chevy Equinox, and the Eagle Talon. Whatever your feelings on the vehicles, the names conjure images of galloping at high speeds on the back of a unicorn across the Pacific Ocean (buck naked).
On the other hand, we have what sounds like a hallucinogenic drug, and a feminine hygiene product with a built in MP3 player.
Naming aside, it appears as though the iPad is asserting itself in areas where it really counts, namely superior performance. With greater battery life (10 vs 7 hours), a larger display and integration with your existing multi-media, the iPad is poised to dominate the “slate computer” segment. And of course when you pair the iPad’s superior performance with the marketing juggernaut that is Apple, the outcome is pretty clear.
