End of the road for 4 Android tablet makers

Digitimes, the news site from Taiwan, has reported that four established PC makers, Acer, Asustek, Dell and HP have finally decided that they cannot compete in the Android tablet market with companies like Apple, Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

All these three OEMs have a combination of solid hardware and tightly integrated software.

Apart from offering compelling propositions to users, these OEMs are also offering very cheap options. Kindle Fire from Amazon sells at $199 while Nook Simple Touch from Barnes & Noble sells at $99 only. One never knows whether the device will become free soon or not.

As per Guardian, these four are probably waiting for the day when a WinPho tablet option will be available. Current margins are too tight and HP is reportedly making only $40 on each $800 PC it sells.

And in any case, it has already been reported that 19 out of 20 enterprise tablets are iPads. is the home of mobile bingo – our current favourite is mmmBingo.
