Tablet PC: The Next Generation?
First it was the slate. Then it was the PC-Tablet convertible. Now it's a mini-Tablet that can do everything that a traditional Tablet PC can do, plus store electronic books, that could end up as the new gadget on which Microsoft is betting to further Tablet PC momentum.Looks very interesting. If it is large, it would be very useful for students for reading textbooks. However, it sounds like it will be too large to be carried around at all times, so don't throw your PDAs away yet; they are still the best for novels and can expect to be so until something soft and foldable ebook-"hard"ware arrives.
A prototype of a new device — described by sources as a type of hybrid Tablet PC/eBook — has been making its way around the Microsoft Redmond campus, according to sources. The mini-Tablet, which measures about six inches by eight inches and features a digitizer, is just one of a number of new Tablet form factors expected to debut in the coming months.
