Interesting article on the Tablet PC, which I think is a pretty good idea, but it needs to about as thin and light as a notebook and be able to recognize anyone’s handwriting. Until then, I agree with what Steve Jobs had to say.
The story is here and Steve’s qoute:
Steve Jobs, the head of Apple, said at a conference back in May that his company has no plans to make a tablet, despite all the hype. “It turns out people want keyboards. When Apple first started out, people couldn’t type. We realized: Death would eventually take care of this.”
Say one thing for Mr Jobs: he’s blunt. He concluded: “We look at the tablet and we think it’s going to fail. Tablets appeal to rich guys with plenty of other PCs and devices already. And people accuse us of niche markets.”
