PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless PCI Express 4.0 is being designed with tablets in mind, according to standards-setting organization PCI Special Interest Group. The PCI-Express 4.0 bus will also go into PCs, servers and embedded devices. PCIe 4.0, will transfer data at up to 16 gigatransfers per second over copper wire. That is twice the speed of PCIe 3.0, which was finalized in late 2010 and is just reaching products.

What tablet uses PCI-E?
The ARM powered tablets on the market all use SoC, meaning the CPU and the GPU are directly linked.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong but this makes about as much sense to me as a kitchen toaster featuring a carbon fiber knob.

So you've never heard of MiniPCIe or ExpressCard? There are tons of devices for these in the mobile and ITX market.
