It sounds very much like the future Tablet computer genre is still being defined by the user and desired applications that make it more and more like the standard notebook or netbook computer. The only difference in the future may be the user interface. Based upon the surge in interest in touch-screen technology in the cell phone world, I guess it's not surprising.

The title of the article is kinda catchy! Interesting points when video resolution and connectivity are the important factors towards Tablet success. However I wonder if other factors such operating systems play an important role? OS comes with a whole lot of applications that may be able to run on the tablet as well so this may play an important factor.

This brings up the general question of partitioning: what do you do on the main CPU and what do you offload. I think that touchscreen control would be a good candidate for offloading: there is a lot of input data that gets processed down to a few bytes of location/vector/gesture data, you want the response time to be independent of main CPU load, and there are times you want the screen to be responsive while the main CPU is sleeping.

The article indeed discusses very well about the resolution of the display and the peripheral connectivity. But it is very well accepted by the industries and users that any xga or higher resolution will server the purpose but multitouch touch screen is essential with a quite stable driver and os to handle the inputs from user.

I was a bid dubious about CSSPs when QuickLogic first started promoting these little scamps, but time has proved me wrong -- I think QuickLogic have carved themselves a unique niche and coudl well be poised for great success...
