The idea of a $700-800 computer tablet had thrown me before more than anything, I didnt give it much thought. But its on now. Apples in there like swimwear (we think, as of 11:40 EST). Apple? Tablet? Applet? The technology has a lot of potential applications video, photo display, etc. but its garnered a bulk of the attention based around what it could do for the e-book market.
Whats the deal with this, though, anyway? The guy at HP uses Star Trek as an example on the show, slate computers were de riguer. The thin tablets were all around, their touch screens ready to input or display information sans keyboard. Sci-fi is now sci-reality.
On that note, consider this offering from BookBook. Currently, it’s meant for a Macbook but, if well all have tablets around the house within a few years in lieu of worn-in hardcovers, itd be nice to wrap them up in something that looks this familiar.
