    FYI -- interesting article regarding the tablet market:
    Staples Makes Big Move Into Tablet Market : Page 1 of 1 : Promo Marketing

    The essence of the article is that Staples has created a site specifically for business customers to compare tablets to make a better informed buying decision: Conferencing and Information Sharing (this link shows up as Conferencing and Info Sharing because that's what Staples has called it for some reason, but it's a link to Staples' tablet comparison site).

    Staples Makes Big Move Into Tablet Market

    The days of the iPad's virtual monopoly on the tablet market are over as an onslaught of new innovative tablet computers begins to enter the market. The new options are generating a wave of tablet demand among businesses and consumers but also creating anxiety over the risk of buying the wrong tablet for their needs. Staples is making it easy for customers. Staples Advantage, the business-to-business branch of Staples, has created staplesadvantage.com/tablets to help research, compare and choose the right tablet to fit their personal and business needs.

    Staples Advantage specifically tailored staplesadvantage.com/tablets to focus on the mobile employee and business applications. It features tablet accessories such as cases, charging stations and Bluetooth keyboards that support tablet use in the field or office. This combination of tablets and accessories give customers business solutions to increase productivity and save time.

    "Staples is already a leader in tech products and services," said Peter Scala, senior vice president and general merchandise manager of office technology for Staples. "Tablets are the hottest new technology and Staples continues to be at the forefront with a wide assortment of tablets and EasyTech and Staples Advantage associates to help consumers and businesses get the most from their tablet purchase."

    Scala added, "The majority of us turn to the Internet to learn and understand new technologies. The Staples tablet microsites provide information to help customers make informed decisions and, once they decide on the product best for them, the ability to purchase with fast and free delivery."

    Tablets will be available through Staples Advantage this spring, starting with Motorola XOOM, BlackBerry PlayBook and Dell Streak. As a technology authority, Staples will add the next wave of new tablets from Acer, Dell, HP, Toshiba and other leading manufacturers over the next few months.
