Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Add the names Acer, Lenovo and Samsung to that of Asus as members of the list of manufacturers who'll be offering Android tablets based on Nvidia's five-core Tegra 3 chip.

So say the inevitable Taiwanese notebook maker moles cited, as always, by local newssite DigiTimes. They also express some scepticism that any of these players will succeed against the likes of Apple and Amazon.

Apple has captured so much tablet market mindshare and is, rightly or wrongly, perceived as the pioneer here. Amazon may not have done anything technologically groundbreaking, but it has pursued a punter-friendly pricing strategy.

Between them - Amazon at the low end of the market, Apple at the top - there's not much room for Acer, Asus, Lenovo, Samsung co. - they "have no advantage to compete", apparently - who will therefore spend more time battling each other than the other two. ®
