Apple It's the most hyped device of the moment, a device that nobody has laid eyes on without an NDA death-grip. While rumour and speculation escalate (sometimes giving way to apathy), little has leaked out of Cupertino. But nobody seems to be asking whether this tablet thing will be successful or not.

I've been looking for a good tablet (an actual computer). I saw the one company turning MB's into slates and stuff, but the price tag was too high. I'm looking at other offerings, which have better, but not optimal prices.

In the end, making it be a big iPod Touch will be a big turn-off for me. The only way I'd consider it, is if it will have a normal Mac OS on it, like a Mac Book Air without the keyboard, then.

If Apple is just going to put the iPhone OS/UI/usability on it, then they shouldn't call it anything resembling an existing product type (a "slate" or "tablet") or they would be misrepresenting their product.
