PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Ah, the tablet computer. For over two decades now have companies tried to get the public to buy the darn things, and yet, despite all the efforts, promises, analysts, and even personal involvement by Bill Gates, they simply never took off. Recently, the tablet has seen renewed attention - but will they succeed now?

I agree. Tablets have niche appeal.

Voice sucks in most applications because it forces the user to be very conspicuous. All I know is that my office is unfortunately library quiet, and it would be very distracting to have someone talking to their computer. Plus I don't write how I talk.

Tablets seem to appeal to artists/designers, the medical field, and a few other applications. Who knows though, I see a lot of people using their iPhones like mini-tablets. Maybe the killer app has yet to be discovered.
