Why Everyone Has High Hopes For Apple Tablet

waderoush writes “The deafening roar of anticipation around Apple’s expected ‘iSlate’ announcement on January 27 is strange, to say the least, given the public’s utter apathy about tablet computers to date. What’s going on? Xconomy’s analysis makes three points. 1) Previous tablet makers have shown little imagination around UIs and how a touchscreen changes things. 2) With the iPhone, Apple has shown what’s possible in this regard. 3) There’s latent demand for a mobile computing device that’s smaller and lighter than a laptop but has more screen real estate than a smartphone — something reminiscent of a Star Trek tricorder or PADD. Hence the hopes for the iSlate — which are so high that it may be difficult for even Apple to meet them.”
