Especially in emerging markets, the rapid development of the Tablet PC is not just rely on the Apple iPad to drive. It is reported that Aakash such as the new brand launch in India, as well, including Dell, a senior computer manufacturers will be to contribute to the development of the Tablet PC market. China and the Asia-Pacific region are the Tablet PC penetration on the highest permeability regions, Brazil, India, Russia and other countries also started to become the major development of Tablet PC market. The key is to promote the rapid development of the Tablet PC market low-power processors and priced at less than $100 cheap Tablet PC.
