I have often thought so to myself too.
However, I struggle with what the tablet (let alone a pad) brings to
my table that a laptop doesn't. Part of that problem is presumably
that I type so much faster than I could ever write. How much hardware
or software have I tried in the past such that resonated enough that I
kept using it? Probably a very small percentage. OTOH - you never
know, and probably can't really appreciate "what you're missing",
until you try it and see if there is resonance.
Which is all to say, what might a touchscreen, or a pen, bring to the
table that I don't already have, and might want?
And want to deal with battery life, recharging, and remember to take
with me - if there's another device already in the room.
I get the e-reader idea, and one device replacing many (cell, pda,
media player) but beyond that, haven't yet seen anything I 'must have'
in a form factor that doesn't prop itself up and have a keyboard.
So what does a pad or tablet bring to one's table?
