Tablets equipped to challenge iPad

The tablet war is going to be quite a battle in 2012 thanks to a bunch of companies stepping up their tablet offerings in order to compete with the iPad from Apple. GizmoWatch takes a look at the challengers to the tablet crown and provides some insight into what each one offers.

When it comes to portable devices, smartphones hint at a hard fought struggle between a few electronic giants, who slog it out in the market realm. But when we consider tablets, they incredibly insinuate a nigh perpetual, one-way commercial sweep by Apple. Core statistics certainly attest to this, with the celebrated iPad line conquering around 90 percent of tablet market share, with a whopping $9.5 billion in revenue generation. In view of such amazing figures, do other tablet makers stand a chance against Apple's deftly fueled onslaught? We would not like to think so as a tad bit competition always brings out the best in commercial scheme of things. So, without further ado, let us check out some tablets from this year that have the potential to challenge the iPad.
