Tablet Competition Heating Up, Again

When the iPad was originally released, it marked the beginning of the tablet competition. Since that time, other devices have reached the market, including Kindle, Nook, and Android-powered tablets.

Today, we are seeing new life in the market as it’s been reported that the Kindle Fire has captured half of the Android Tablet Market.

In addition to that news, Barnes & Nobile recently partnered with Microsoft to put more attention on the Nook and its software. This partnership brings more financial backing to the Nook, and gives it a better opportunity to compete with Apple and Amazon.

Finally, in last week’s Mequoda Daily, we announced the launch of Adobe’s Creative Cloud. This subscription offer gives content creators the chance to use Adobe CS6, store gigabytes of content, and receive tips and advice from the community.
