And if so, what does that mean for the elusive Tablet PC? We take a look at a Dell Studio One, which is powered by NextWindow's optical touch screen technology. (With video)

Archos 9 Tablet

FYI, there was an article last week in ComputerWorld about a touchscreen tablet running Windows 7, the Archos 9. I don't know if the screen is 10", but it's 0.68" thick, Bluetooth-capable, priced around $500, and positioned as a netbook-class machine. No word of a docking station, unfortunately, but otherwise it's pretty close to what you're asking for. Something to keep an eye on. :-)

Here it is in the article:
