Bookies Pick iPad Killer

With rumors swirling that BlackBerry maker Research in Motion (RIM) could unveil its forthcoming tablet -- a.k.a. “the BlackPad” -- as early as next week, consumers and analysts are guessing what company will be next to officially announce a tablet to compete with Apple’s iPad.

Mickey Richardson and his team at, one of the leading sportsbooks, have calculated the odds on who the next company to release a tablet to compete with Apple’s iPad in 2010 will be.

LG +300 25%
HTC +100 50%
SHARP +300 25%
MOTOROLA +300 25%
NOKIA +150 40%
SANYO +300 25%

For those of you unfamiliar with the joys of wagering, the +/- indicates the return on the wager. The percentage is the likelihood that response will occur. For example: Betting on the candidate least likely to win would earn the most amount of money, should that happen.

Where would you place your bet?
