Apple Flexes Its Muscle in the Tablet Sphere

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology and media editor/analyst Andrew Tonner and technology editor/analyst Brenton Flynn discuss topics around the investing world.

The tablet market has been one of the most explosive growth opportunities for investors in recent years, and for good reason. As computing power increasingly grows and better technologies fit into smaller devices, consumers no longer need to be chained to their desktop to perform many of the most essential tasks. This is truly a massive opportunity for investors. However, not all entries are equal in this high-stakes growth market. Recently, market-share numbers for the first quarter of 2012 came out, and one player unsurprisingly is the clear leader. Find out who it is, as well as where the market appears to go from here.
