And I Had Such High Hopes for the Naxa NID-7001

Alexis Madrigal, “Why You Can Ignore CES”:

Well, here’s a test case. Let’s say you paid close attention last year to the tablets that were hyped at the show. How important have they turned out to be, one year on?

We broke down the trajectories of 17 tablets from CES 2011. In the final tally, I think you could say one is a qualified success (the Asus Eee Pad Transformer), one did OK (the Motorola XOOM), and several flopped (Dell Streak, RIM Playbook) or made no impact (Coby Kyrus, Cydle M7 Multipad, Naxa NID-7001). Nine never were heard from again.

Where by “qualified” he apparently means in the “non-iPad” category.
