Tablet Wave is BreakingLarry Mittag

Samsung has made it official with the Tab, and Toshiba, Viewsonic, and a host of others are following suit with their own tablet devices. Most of these are based on Android / Tegra 2 and have 802.11x and wideband networking.
Personally, I see this as a very interesting platform. I am thinking in terms of a home media controller , newspaper / magazine / book reader, and a few other things. I think the relatively open Android platform is much more interesting than yet another Apple walled garden / jail cell.
Are tablets an exciting new platform or just a fad? Are open-platform tablets a game-changer?
