PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Tablets are the culmination of what Steve Jobs wanted to create at Apple from the beginning", Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has said. During a keynote session at Storage Networking World in Santa Clara, California, Wozniak was asked how tablets would change the computer industry. He compared them to TVs. "The tablet is not necessarily for the people in this room," Wozniak told the audience of enterprise storage engineers. "It's for the normal people in the world."

I sold my NotionInk Adam tablet last weekend. It is a great piece of hardware and there are a lot of cool hacks and apps around, but in the end it's still a consumer device. Tablets seem totally unsuited for most of the work I do on my laptop(PC?). Even the consumer part, browsing the web, watching movies or reading documents, is not very convincing due to limited performance, flexibility and integration with the rest of the world.

Even simple and well-established applications like email are so amazingly primitive...it feels like you're back in the 80ies, only that everything is 3D now. Even Tetris.
