Every time a new high-end Android or Windows tablet is released, the phrase "iPad killer" gets tossed around. That's because the iPad is still king of the tablets - the one to beat.
In fact, if something doesn't change soon, "iPad" could become the next "Xerox," "Post-it" or "Kleenex."
Now, for my Android fans already headed down to the comment section to let me know about your favorite tablet that leaves the iPad in the dust, I do know that many Android tablets are as good or even in some ways better than the iPad.
However, you have to admit the iPad manages to combine form, function and name recognition into a package that no Android tablet has managed to crack yet.
The latest company to pick up the hammer and chisel to try is Dell. At the Intel Developer Conference, it showed off the new Dell Venue 8 7840. OK, the name has got to go, but what it can do is impressive.
