RE: Thoughts on the mythical Apple Tablet
I don't know diddly about the Apple Tablet but have been thinking lately about the Amazon Kindle.
To me, it seems like the Kindle points in the direction of future computing. It is:
1. highly portable
2. connected wirelessly to the Internet
4. blessed with a relatively large screen
If you built in telephone capability and a keyboard (or maybe a USB port into which a keyboard can be plugged), the Kindle would be a highly interesting device. You might laugh at the thought of using a Kindle as a telephone, but think about using it with a Bluetooth or even a wired headset. Imagine a single fairly lightweight device that you could use for entertainment, telephone, texting, Web surfing and book reading, all connected wirelessly to the Internet no matter where you are.
Maybe it's just me, but I think that's an interesting product idea.
