Oh, There’s a Market for Tablets All Right, Sony. Just as There Was a Market for, Ahem, iPods.

Sony isn’t convinced there’s a market for tablet computers, though Apple has sold more than a million of them since April and Intel (INTC) this week predicted that the tablet market will grow from 73 to 88 percent between now until 2014.

“We have been taking a deep look at developing a tablet for a number of years, not just because of Apple but because it creates some interesting opportunities,” Sony Information Technology Products SVP Mike Abary told Bloomberg this week.

“The iPad has created a new opportunity,” Abary added. “Now we can get a good judgment as to whether the market is truly accepting of it. [We’re] not convinced there is a large enough market to justify bringing out a tablet.”

So, Sony (SNE) is taking a wait-and-see approach to Apple’s (AAPL) iPad.

Odd considering where a similar approach to the iPod left the company.
