When I look at the wars going on between tablets and cells phones, I am suddenly reminded of the BETA vs VHS war. Sony released the first BETA machine in 1975 with only a handful of companies manufacturing them. Sony kept tight control over the technology with most users saying it was technically superior. In 1977, JVC intruduced the VHS format. JVC licensed the technology to over 40 companies and sold the decks for cheap. Now, here we are in 2011. See any similiarities? BETA = APPLE VHS = ANDROID If Apple doesn't do something soon, they will be left in the dust especially in the tablet market. Sure, there will always be loyal Apple followers but I wonder even how long that will last. Interesting to say the least.
