It is pretty much accepted now that 2011 will be the year of tablets. Last year, after the iPad kick-started the revolution, we only saw a handful of devices that could challenge the giant. This year at CES, we saw over 100, most of them running - you guessed it - Android. The competition is on, and soon we'll see who makes it out a winner in the tablet war and who will head straight to the junk yard.

Shawn DuBravac, the official Chief Economist and Director of Research for the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) that runs CES, attempted to tally up all the newbies and provided his results in a handy table that I've reformatted below, highlighting Android devices. The table lists 76 of over 100 tablets, as Shawn is still working on adding everything in.

Of course, we're definitely not guaranteed to see all of the tablets listed below make it to market, and until we do, I propose a new column for you, Shawn - Vaporware.

    Listen, I'm as big of an Android fan as anyone else here. I think all the people who insist the Galaxy Tab is not a real tablet due to the 7 inch screen size completely fail to see the advantages of have a smaller tablet. I'd probably think 10 inches is too much after a little while (Okay... maybe not)... but that being said, how in hell can Panasonic call that 4 inch thing a tablet? The EVO has it beat by a third of an inch!

    Although I'd like to mention that I have a Dinc, and that I'm kind of dreading how (I think) all the new Verizon phones coming out this year are like 4-4.3 inches. I can't imagine having any phone larger than 3.7/8 inches. When my contracts up later on this year, if they don't have a decent selection for my taste I'll probably end up switching carriers.

    Whoa... just realized I ranted, my bad.

      Yeah, the 4" tablet is definitely not a tablet, that's ridiculous. How about that 14" clunker? :D

  • Paul

    Great start! Now we need more columns like CPU, Memory, Features (Laptop docking, etc) etc.

    • http://stuarthalliday.com Stuart Halliday

      Make sure it includes battery capacity and type of screen.

  • James

    Android is the majority OS because it's free. Duh. ;)

    • Viceroy

      And worth every penny of it!

  • jims

    Yes, great start. Turn it into a google docs spreadsheet and let everyone have permission to edit it!

  • http://stuarthalliday.com Stuart Halliday

    And these don't even seem to include the tablets sold by Next or Maplin in the UK! Wow.

  • Rick Zabala

    The r/evolution of Apple now it has a bigger army after it. I think still the iPad has the Apple software behind it to use in the iPads. Don't know what the others may have. There is more to pads other than just reading.

  • James Marzano

    It would be great if this list was updated with the MWC announced tablets as well. Where's the google doc spreadsheet of this?
