Sony executive Kunimasa Suzuki told journalists that his company is aiming to become the number 2 in the tablet market by 2012:
The tablet Sony has plans to release stands out at CES because it's actually not here, but mostly because Sony appears to stand alone in that it isn't positioning it as an iPad killer.
The company briefly noted that it's got a tablet in the works during yesterday's press conference.
"We'd really like to take the No. 2 position (in the tablet market) by 2012," Kunimasa Suzuki, deputy president of Sony, said at a roundtable discussion with company executives here today. Unlike the gobs of Android-powered tablets introduced this week, Sony sounded less determined to dislodge the iPad or its successor in the next two years.
