Nokia N900 would be my choice if I was to dive into smartphone-tablet-all-in-one market. And this is a personal choice of an excavator type of person - I want to see the source code, I want full access, I want freedom of choice and not restrictions. This is something that Apple simply can't provide for me. For the same reason, I use Linux 90% of my time, both at work and home. I wouldn't really care about the price, as I will pay it only once and use the device for a long time (presumably it's what I need), but if I have to purchase gadgets every time, that would be too much.
But back on the topic, Apple should be more afraid of Nokia's recent "cheap-smartphones-wave", executed by the C series (C5 gets a lot of paper appreciation these days), of Samsung's growing market (S5800 Wave) share and their Bada, by the newly spawned MeeGo OS by Intel and Nokia, by Android which seems to perform quite amazing on Motorola Driod, of LG's forthcoming 4 and some inch display, and the Sony Ericsson's addiction to HD videos recoding. I hear that RIM is also doing well, but I don't have observations over their devices and software.
