According to a report by Robert W. Baird, consumers who already own or plan to buy a new tablet are only interested in one thing: the Apple iPad (based on a a survey of 1,114 people, 98 percent of whom lived in the United States).
Although survey participants were allowed to pick multiple tablet choices, only 10 percent chose the Hewlett-Packard TouchPad as their tablet. A mere 4 percent said they would buy Research in Motion’s new BlackBerry tablet, the PlayBook. The Acer Iconia tablet, which runs Google’s Android software, barely scored 1 percent among survey participants.

Right now, if Apple is looking back, it cannot really see anyone in the tablets market, but that doesn't convince me to change my prediction:
BTW, the survey also found that a 83 percent of tablet owners still plan to buy a PC computer in addition to their tablet. This means that tablet cannibalization of the PC computer is taking place at a very slow pace.
