Linux Canonical recently announced that they are developing a tablet version of their popular Ubuntu operating system, slated to be released in 2011. This comes hot on the heels of the release of the Apple iPad, and the rumors that HP plans to release a WebOS-based tablet sometime late 2010. However, Canonical's foray into the tablet arena is fundamentally different from both the iPad and a WebOS tablet, and unfortunately reeks of a company failing to learn from their competitors successes and failures.

Why not focus on smartbooks?

I beleive tablets will be dominated by Android. However smartbooks can be Ubuntu's realm. I wouldn't buy a chromeOs one.

For me, I would never buy a ChromeOS anything (it would be completely useless for me). Android would be great for a phone. I would probably want something like MeeGo for a tablet or netbook, and Ubuntu or Fedora for desktops/laptops.
