The iPad Just Ate 11% Of The PC Market

The iPad Just Ate 11% Of The PC Market | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
In January, we noted that the iPad was equal to 7% of the PC market.
Now, it's at 11%.

According to IDC's latest estimates, worldwide personal computer sales -- not including tablets -- were 84.4 million during the quarter. That's growth of about 2% from last year.
Looking at it another way, assume that most iPads were sold to consumers, and that overall PC sales are split about halfway between consumers and businesses. In that case, the iPad has already sucked up about 20% of the consumer PC market.

The Daily App: Optimum For iPad

The Daily App: Optimum For iPad | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
When Internet and cable TV provider Cablevision launched its Optimum app for iPad, it became one of several big providers to fundamentally alter the value proposition of the tablet.

With the free app, which is available for download from the Apple iTunes App Store, Cablevision (Time Warner Cable has a similar app, among others) provides live streaming access to all the channels to which you subscribe – and streaming access to on-demand programming as well. This app essentially turns the iPad into a mobile, hand-held TV with crisp audio and video.

Review Roundup: HP TouchPad Is No iPad Killer, But It Has Potential

Check out what early reviewers are saying about the new HP TouchPad.
The overall impression from most of the major reviews is that HP has some great ideas, that given enough time and developer support, could easily develop into something wonderful. Android tablets are having a hard time gaining traction and RIM has failed to really deliver on its promises for the Playbook, which means that despite a late entry, HP might have a shot at placing in the race.

6 reasons to consider Onswipe for tablet-friendly websites | Poynter.

6 reasons to consider Onswipe for tablet-friendly websites | Poynter. | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
Onswipe creates an app-like experience on the Web, with lots of photo and video thumbnails, minimalist article presentation and touch-based interaction through dragging and swiping. Onswipe sites welcome users with a full-screen “cover” page, leading to a table of contents and the individual article pages.

I think news publishers will want to test-drive Onswipe for several reasons.
It’s free.
It’s simple.
It could bring in new revenue.
It works on multiple mobile platforms.
It stays entirely on your Web domain.
It’s flexible.

An app war is brewing: Web-based tablet apps with HTML5 challenging app-store offerings

An app war is brewing: Web-based tablet apps with HTML5 challenging app-store offerings | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
An app war is brewing. Pressure to break the grip of app stores and the need for multiple versions of applications to run on the slew of devices out there are driving some companies, notably media outlets, to test tablet apps that essentially are websites.

The alternative tablet apps use the latest Web programming code, called HTML5, which integrates new features for working off-line, dragging-and-dropping into the browser, and playing video and audio without "plug-ins" such as Flash, which Apple has banned from the iPad.
But how is it all working out?

Having a list of top categories to search is a great idea, yes. Even better is the ability News360 gives you to create your own. The semantic analysis engine can (with your permission) check out your Twitter, Facebook, Google Reader and Everlook accounts to understand what your area of interests are. This allows the app to bring you stories which will be the most important to you. You can skip the social media stuff and set up your personal feed choices manually if that is more to your liking.

New iPad magazine Once, released Wednesday via the App Store, thinks that a new, digital format calls for a new, more appropriate compensation model.

Apple confirms: Mac OS X Lion launches tomorrow | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
During the company’s earnings call, Apple’s CFO Peter Oppenheimer announced that its newest operating system, Mac OS X Lion, would be launching tomorrow. This confirms the rumors that have been swirling over the last few days.
OS X Lion is an extensive upgrade to Apple’s OS X operating system, bringing sweeping changes across the OS. The addition of features like full-screen applications, Launchpad and extensive gesture support have led many to make correlations between Apple’s iOS and OS X platforms. This has sparked rumors that Apple could be merging these two into one at some point in the future.

Why an Amazon tablet can rival the iPad - TNW Mobile

Why an Amazon tablet can rival the iPad - TNW Mobile | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
Without so much as a whisper from the retailer itself, Amazon’s Android tablet is heading our way. Rumoured to launch at the end of the third quarter in time for the holiday season, Amazon is hoping it can steal a little of Apple’s thunder and steal a little of its market share.

Apple’s rivals have tried to match the aesthetics and the simplicity of the iPad and mostly all of them have failed; Motorola rushed its XOOM to market to become the first vendor to launch an Android Honeycomb tablet, Samsung has had limited success with its 7-inch Galaxy Tab but has struggled in its attempts to bring a 10-inch model to market.

HP has Apple-like control over webOS hardware and software. Now comes the hard part: winning over consumers and developers.

The PC giant's Wintel-free tablet is part of a big gamble that began with the purchase of Palm's webOS: to build its own ecosystem.
Bradley and Rubinstein say that if the TouchPad's reception is lukewarm initially, they'll be patient. "We have a really good opportunity to become No. 2 in tablets fairly quickly," Rubinstein says. "Possibly No. 1."

Can OnSwipe convince media to go web instead of app?

Can OnSwipe convince media to go web instead of app? | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
OnSwipe is launching the full version of its web-publishing service today, which allows media companies to create tablet-friendly views of their content that look and act like apps.

In a nutshell, Co-Founder and CEO Jason Baptiste’s pitch to publishers is that while apps are good for some things — games, specific actions such as listening to music, etc. — for content-related purposes they aren’t ideal, for either the publisher or the user. As Baptiste puts it in one of the slides he shows to investors and partners, “apps are bull***.” To take just one example, most apps don’t take advantage of the web by using links or interactivity as much as they could, because the content is locked inside an app.

Why Flurry Got It Wrong On Mobile Apps Vs. Web Browsers

Why Flurry Got It Wrong On Mobile Apps Vs. Web Browsers | Tablet Publishing | Scoop.it
The debate between the Web vs. Apps, between HTML5 vs. Native applications, has long been marked by half-truths, spin, and misinformation.

Some commentators have said the Flurry stats mean that “apps are winning over html5.” Once you go beyond games, which Flurry's data says is 47% of all App minutes, then the Web is winning by a mile. For blogs, sharing links on twitter and facebook, news, video, sports, adult content, entertainment content, and more categories where fresh daily content is being published, nothing beats the ease and power of browsers to reach a cross-device audience on desktop, mobile, and tablet. You can't even share a link into a Native App, only out, and only to a URL. Apps need the web if they link out, or share socially.

Both the web and Apps are here to stay, and both will grow as mobile grows.
