Apple has been very successful in the tablet market after the release of its first tablet, dubbed iPad, in 2010. The real truth behind the success is that there was no competition in the market at the time of launch of the original iPad. So, not surprisingly, iPad sold like hot cakes. With the launch of iPad 3, Apple is expected to continue to lead the tablet pack but the gap between the new iPad, which is expected to feature faster processor (dual-core or quad-core), high-resolution Retina Display, iOS 5.1 with Siri, better camera and bigger battery, and its Android rivals are expected to narrow.
