Apple has the Momentum

During the announcement of the iPad 2, Steve Jobs called this the PostPC era. He criticized other tablet makers for thinking this was a new PC market.

From Steve Jobs himself, "A lot of folks in this tablet market are rushing in and seeing this as the next PC. Our experience and every bone in our body says that this is not the right approach to this. These are post-PC devices that need to be even easier to use than a PC. That need to be even more intuitive than a PC. And where the software, hardware, and applications need to intertwine in a more seamless way than the PC."

With the successful dominance of the iPad and after living in Microsoft's shadow in the PC arena, Steve Jobs and Apple will not repeat this for another 20 years.

They have defined the new era. Apple has the Momentum. This means that the market is theirs to lose.
