Samsung Galaxy, Apple iPad among all-in-one tablets reshaping consumer electronics

The winnowing raises the stakes in the rivalry between iPad maker Apple; Samsung Electronics Co., which produces the Galaxy line of devices; and Amazon.com Inc., with its Kindle Fire tablets.

Consumer polls by research firm Parks Associates show that iPads are the most sought-after gadget gift for the second straight holiday season, compared with televisions and laptops in previous years.

In total, tablet shipments are on pace to rise more than 54 percent this year to 221.3 million units, from virtually nothing in 2010, according to IDC. The Consumer Electronics Association projects 19 percent of the $33.2 billion anticipated to be spent on technology during the holiday season will go toward tablets.
