I see tablets as merely an expensive toy. I simply don't see the user interface as being sufficiently accurate or friendly for serious work. Touchscreens work well enough in limited applications, but they are not for me. Thats not to say that I don't like the devices. Quite the contrary, I love having a fiddle with them. But no way would I have (and pay for!)one.

In fact, I'll go further and say that in my opinion touch screen access is somewhat of a blind alley in terms of computers, although less so with phones.

Reactionary? maybe. Wrong? Well I bet some certainly think so. But I think touchscreen tablets are more 'trendy' than usefull.

I've gotta 7" tablet... and I've also gotta USB internet modem dongle which works with it in harmony [in the house, anyway]. I will be shortly experimentin' with the 'tablet 'n' dongle' combo to accesss [in synchronous sound via personal stereo headphones ] the commentaries of horseraces on the 'big-TV-screens' down at my local 'cos if you are sittin' too faraway [from the action] you can't tell [ or make out the sounds or colours or numbers of the horses and exactly where your money is going].
