The iPad’s biggest rival will likely be Samsung’s Galaxy Tab. You’ll be able to buy it through cell phone providers, who will choose the price themselves. Like the iPad, you’ll be able to use it like a phone, a camera, and a mini computer.
Dell also has already released the Streak. This phone-like device is based on Android technology. It’s smaller than an iPad, but it can use a lot of similar applications.
The Toshiba Folio is only in Europe at the moment, but it will probably hit America soon. This device is a lot like the iPad, but it’s based on Android technology. It comes with the option of Wi-Fi, as well as a web-cam and an SD slot.
