I have seen this behavior , the zombie style, maybe that's why Apple "hit" the prices up. These two arguments you just said give me the impression that Apple has dominated ,because the Αpple name is fashion.
With new players and all, Apple may remain as the main player for two reasons:
1.It may be the case that Apple dominates the market, in part, thanks to its devote users. Some of them become like zombies at the time of defending an Apple device. A good motto could be: It's Apple. It's the best reason to buy it.
2.Apple products have many advantages concerning OS and apps over the competitors.
although many players are entering into tablet market, android tablets will just remain as an alternate product lying on the table. No product can beat ipad in tablet segment. iOS has the best user interfaceand apps.
Even with all the recent competition, Apple’s iPad is the still the tablet to beat.Although there is a mad rush to put out tablets onto the market from would be competitors, the reviews on these tablets have yet to measure up to the features and the user experience of the iPad.So far, the only one close from what I have read is the Motorola Xoom.RIM’s PlayBook reviews have been disappointing.So far the iPad still sets the bar on tablets and it seems smartphones too.
Despite the forecasts, I think Apple has a long way ahead if wants to dominate in the tablet market. Don't forget that since now Apple hasn't had competitors but today a lot of new players occur. Furthermore, customers don't like "black box" devices.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
