    When you say "fleshed out" what exactly do you mean? Are you saying the market is done, or the players identified, or some other explanation? That is a bit nebulous on your part it appears. Reply

    I think its refering to no one buying a 10inch tablet until they find out if they can get a $100 touchpad out of HP before that ship goes down. Reply

    It appears that the iPad is still selling quite well so that can't be it. I think, and I could be wrong, that it was a throw away statement not based on any sort of facts or at least any I can see. Reply

    I think it refers to the fact that 10" tablets market is full, well structured already and not many surprises can happen there in the near future. By comparison, the <10" market is just starting to form and new hot things will happen there soon. Reply

    Thanks but which tablets are "filling" the 10 inch tablet markets? I see the iPad pretty much dominating with a few Android tablets here and there. Not trying to be pedantic but I don't get his logic. Reply

    Didn't you just answer you're own question? There's no 7" ipad to dominate that market (and no others either), so one could say that the market hasn't been "fleshed out". Reply

    It's because he doesn't want to say the obvious:
    - everyone has concluded they cannot compete with iPad, so they're trying to differentiate themselves
    - the only way they can figure out how to do that is a different screen size

    Sorry Toshiba, I think the 10" Thrive is the best of the bunch mostly because of it's full size USB, SD card, and HDMI ports, but by putting micro versions on the 7" Thrive it's just one of the bunch.
    At the least you should have given it a full size HDMI port so we could use a standard HDMI cable to connect it to a TV to watch videos and photos when away on holdays/business.

    Well I'm sure the 7" model is targeted at a different class of buyer. The 10" monster is for the power user who demands normal/familar ports and isn't obsessive about being able to stick their tablet in a manila envelope. Reply

    Complaining about having too many ports, too big a battery and too many features?

    You Apple minimalists are a joke.
