They need to just come up with a wireless touchscreen display that can be syncd to your cell phone or desktop or laptop. Then the tablet market would be dead as you could just display and control your smartphone from the wireless display or your desktop/laptop.
I think that is called remote desktop which iOS and Android can handle...
On the subject, if that tablet came out it's something i could see my self using. I hust find the 7-8" tablets a bit too bulky to carry at all times and too small and underpowered to use on my couch without sacrificing the experience... I still havent found anything that i need to do outside the house (email checking, looking up info about stuff, passing some time etc that my iphone (or any android device for that matter) cannot handle more than adequately. On the other hand, using an 8inch tablet on my couch to browse the web and be productive and quick is just not enough. For that i need a more desktop-OS-like interface and a faster processor which will allow me to do stuff properly. I ususally have around 10 pages open, with a couple of other programs inthe background and my messengers on the side of the screen. The 7-8 inch thingys are just not enough.
I believe that with a larger tablet and a smartphone your covered. You will only use the desktop for processor intensive apps (video encoding, photoshoping and ofcourse "hardcore" (i mean not argry-birds-style) gaming. The 8inch is just a gimmick for me, 19-20" would probably be what i'd opt for.
Its a slate, not a tablet. But its interesting. I wouldnt buy one, i have no need. But i can see some situations where it might come in handy. Design meetings maybe. Traditional board game replacement. Sketching.
I don't see anything wrong with a 23inch screen that is lightweight and multitouch. I don't need it to have a battery, processor, OS, storage etc.
It might have kinect style cameras, and with those, no need for the touch screen. Stereoscopic 3d could be nice also.
"It's obviously not for full mobility use, but it could be moved from room to room in the house and used with a full keyboard, or as a television," he said. "Or you could lay it on a table top and use it for family games."
Alternatively, on each corner of the tablet you could screw in 4 table legs and use it as a Microsoft Surface bedside table
