Apple Inc. (AAPL) to be Added to Several WisdomTree ETFsIn addition to the Nexus 7, it appears that the tablet from Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is going to have even more competition in Japan in the near future.

Bloomberg is reporting that Sony will be throwing its hat into the tablet ring with its new Xperia Tablet Z. Here is some more information to get us started:

“Sony Corp. (6758), the electronics maker struggling after four straight annual losses, will introduce a new tablet computer in Japan this year as it tries to lure customers from Apple Inc. (AAPL) and Samsung Electronics Co.”

This may not have anything to do with the United States market right now, but it is an interesting addition to the industry nonetheless. Is it possible that Sony is targeting the Japanese market due to the recent success of the Nexus 7? Do they see a vulnerability in the market that could be exploited in the near future?

At this point, it is easy to see that Sony is desperate for something that can bring the company back to life. The question remains: is taking on the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad the best way of doing this? Or is the company facing a losing proposition from the start?
