The Apple Tablet will not make the same mistakes as other tablet PCs


Tablets have historically just been laptops with digitizers, and ran operating systems that were only modestly tweaked to encapsulate the functionality the tablet-form factor implies. Apple is not going to make that same mistake: the one thing Apple does better than any other company on the market is releasing new, fully actualized products, with operating systems designed around the possibilities of their deviceís form and function. They arenít going to release a laptop without a keyboard. They are going to release a targeted product that is much more likely to be meant for mobile browsing, reading, gaming and multimedia than writing reports or presentations.

Iím a bit skeptical of the Apple Tablet too, but it would be total stupidity to write off Appleís device simply because of the mistakes companies like Microsoft and HP have made in the past. Apple will have learned from them, and their Tablet isnít going to be like anything on the market before. It will fail or succeed, not as a tablet, but as a new class of product.
