A tablet is just a big Iphone IMHO and I personally cannot see where they can fit in or who their target market is meant to be especially as they are not exactly small.

One market is those with work mobiles and PC's who want to keep their social life separate and don't want tol sqint at a phone screen

I only use desktop PCs, so no.

Tablets will go the way of the Kindle. OK if you think you look cool with one, but they'll be gone in the next few years. Apologies for changing the subject, but why would you pay £111 to read a book?

You're on dangerous ground there ~ FE's got shares in Kindle or something!

but I think that a little development work is required yet. Even the iPad has its share of weaknesses.

I was looking forward to the pricing of the Motorla Xoom, thinking that they may undercut the iPad for a well spec'd but affordable tablet. How disappointed was I to read rumours of a £720 price tag.

Even for the £450 cost of an iPad, you can get a netbook with a 10.1" screen (and a keyboard!), which will out perform the iPad and is more functional - and you'll keep £200 in the bank.

I'm missing something with this tablet hype. Could someone fill me in?
