Cheap http://www.boxwill.com/catalog/android_tablets-336.html are currently on the rise, but not just low-end hardware from manufacturers that you've probably never heard of -- true consumer electronics heavyweights are getting in on the action.
The new devices and the 4.0 version old devices, which are upgraded to Android 4.1 Tablet, will have chrome by default but others will continue to have android. However, for web views, Chrome engine is not yet being introduced. Further, in terms of HTML5 compatibility as well, the default engine on 4.1 upgraded devices is still continues to be non-Chrome.
I'm curious as to why Google hasn't shown Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) on any tablets yet (no screenshots, and as far as I'm aware they haven't talked about if/ how it works different from Android 4.1 for phones). As far as apps go, after watching the video of Android 4.1 Tablet and Nexus 4 made by someone, it almost seemed to me he was denying any difference between tablet and phone apps, unless he was talking solely about the technical aspects of it not UI, that concerns me. Ultimately, I think Android 4.1 Tablets (Jelly Bean) will provide a small augmentation in tablet growth but nothing extraordinary...
