"Over the past few months, there have a lot of potential iPad competitors entering (or preparing to enter) the market. The most common are Android-based tablets running either the current/recent Android releases or models that will ship with Google's tablet-optimized Honeycomb release. There's also a couple of new platforms on the horizon including RIM's PlayBook and HP's upcoming webOS tablets (along with potential webOS netbooks).

"With four distinct platforms (five if you differentiate between Honeycomb and phone-oriented Android releases like Froyo), the space is already a bit crowded. And it may get even more crowded.

"Rumors and potential tablet applications have been quietly circulating for a while now that Nokia will ship a tablet based on its MeeGo OS. Although those rumors haven't been solidly confirmed, photos of what could be a recent prototype (which may or may not have made an appearance in TRON Legacy) emerged over the weekend."
