Tim Cook

Although the tablet landscape is going to change in a big way in the next few months, the only real competitors as of late have been the Galaxy Tab and the iPad. Unsurprisingly, Apple COO Tim Cook thinks there's even less competition in the market. During the company's earnings call today, Cook managed to diss both Windows and Android-based tablets, calling the former "big and heavy and expensive" with "weak battery life" and describing the latter as "a scaled-up smartphone." What about those new tablets that were unveiled at CES? As of right now, "they're vapor" according to Cook.

It's not terribly surprising that Cook doesn't think very highly of his competitors, and some may argue that he kind of has a point. The Galaxy Tab was a good tablet on its own, and Samsung did a great job skinning the OS to make it work well on a larger form factor, but Google itself said that Froyo wasn't really meant to run on a tablet. Honeycomb, on the other hand, should make Android tablets really shine, and I bet that the market is going to look quite a bit different than it does today once Android 3.0-powered tablets begin hitting the market in the next couple of months.
