February 24th, 2011 – Motorola Xoom available for sale, first Honeycomb tablet, technically more advanced than the iPad.
March 11th, 2011 – Apple iPad 2 available, proven track record, technically similar to the Xoom.
April 2nd, 2011 – Blackberry Playbook (possibly) available, new OS, technically similar to the iPad 2 and Xoom.
Sometime in the middle of the year – HP’s tablet available, new OS, technically similar to all the above.
Who’s going to get to be in second place, since first is already a lock?
