Be interesting to see the sales figures of this.

Apple is so respected now that buying anything other than Apple is seen as betrayal or if it doesn't have an apple with a bit mark logo what's the point of having it.

Not the case.
For the fans not buying Apple is almost a hethenist act. But for the Apple haters the Apple is like the devil, something you don't ever want to be near.

No. No, not really.

I own plenty of non Apple products that rival somewhat similar Apple products that are available.

A few of my friends won an iPad from school contests earlier in the school year (including a recent one)…my school keeps buying them and giving them away on certain occasions. I'm going to wait before getting one. I don't really have the need for one right now anyway.

My Dad bought a Samsung Galaxy tab. His reason for buying it is "I'm not the Apple user in the house- you are." LOL.

Wonder what comes after the tablet in 20-30 years?

I don't know. But I would put money on it, whatever it is, Apple either will invent it, or take a dodgy version of it and revolutionise it.
