It's no secret that Apple has the tablet market in a throttle hold.

For proof, check in with the Motorola Xoom, the HP TouchPad, and the BlackBerry PlayBook, all cutting-edge devices which have bumped up, in one way or another, against the enduring supremacy of the iPad. Or check in with the folks at Gartner, who this week published a report indicating that Apple will have a "free run" over its competitors for the next three years.

"We expect Apple to maintain a market share lead throughout our forecast period by commanding more than 50 percent of the market until 2014," Carolina Milanesi, research vice president at Gartner said in a statement. "This is because Apple delivers a superior and unified user experience across its hardware, software and services. Unless competitors can respond with a similar approach, challenges to Appleā€™s position will be minimal."
