iPad 2 Extends Apple's Lead: Apple Will Dominate The Tablet Market For Years

Apple's iPad 2 isn't a massive advance over the first iPad, but with hardware, software, apps, distribution, and pricing combined, it is still by far the best tablet on the market.

Despite recent announcements from Google, Motorola, Samsung, HP, and RIM, we still expect Apple to dominate the tablet market for years.
