Philip Buxton so what one should I get :)Jun 1, 2010 03:08 pm
Mark Higginson Your comments highlight a key point. Bill Gates was talking about a tablet computer. OLPC are talking about a $100 tablet. Apple don't do concepts. They ship products. Let's speculate again when either of these two pretenders have more than vapour to show us.May 31, 2010 11:48 pm
Gregory Lyons If they can produce a tablet computer at that price point ($100) with those specs running an open system like Android I think it'll blow the ipad out of the waterMay 28, 2010 04:33 pm
Antony Mayfield I find it fascinating that Microsoft has yet to produce a device like this (no tablet PCs don't count) - but I expect they will get there soon.
Check out the One Laptop Per Child Foundation's plans for instance...

Gregory Lyons Interestingly back in 2007 Bill Gates was talking about the tablet computer (ipad) and how he believed it would be the future and Steve Jobs was talking about the PC

Gates: "I don't think you'll have one device. I think you'll have a full-screen device that you can carry around and you'll do dramatically more reading off of that... yeah, I mean, I believe in the tablet form factor [...] You'll have some way of having a hardware keyboard and some settings for that. And then you'll have the device that fits in your pocket, which the whole notion of how much function should you combine in there, you know, there's navigation computers, there's media, there's phone.
Jobs: "It will be the PC, maybe used a little more tightly coupled with some back-end Internet services and some things like that."May 28, 2010 12:30 pm
