There was rumour in the market that Mircrosoft is planning to buy Nokia....If that happens then it can give stiff competition to APPLE.

I realize the Cisco Cius is not officially out yet. This blogger has an interesting twist on its potential impact: [http://www.itbusinessedge.com/cm/blogs/enderle/the-cisco-tablet-radically-changing-the-corporate-desktop/?cs=42086]

The iPAd has its pluses including becoming a darling for executives to show off their latest gizmo. There's lot to be desired though for using the iPad as a business tool, to do serious business. Has anyone tried the Cisco Cius tablet yet aimed at the professional?

I love the ipad, that Web browsing, Email, Read news & comics, Watching movies on a plane, Watching photo, videos, totally amazing, and this are what I experience most. Actually not a fangirl - that said, I just might be one now.... the iPad has already changed the way I do my work - the iPad is here to stay! I am sticking with my iPad. I think other will do the same once they try it and realize it is so perfect and sleek:-) And share some of my collections:http://www.aneesoft.com/win-dvd-to-ipad-converter.html

For business use, I prefer a tablet that can help taking notes and then provide good formatting or publishing tools to tidy up handwriting and free hand sketch into some kind of commonly readable document format (win word or so?). The formatting tool even need not be built inside the tablet as many people usually also have their own PC or laptop so formatting work can be left to the real computer. This kind of tablet can help businessmen who spend most of their time on the road. No business man like to use the finger to write so a pen (a smart one) is still a good idea. Will these companies work with WACOM for their nice drafting technology?

I would think the open source apps world would be a very large threat to Apple's Apps store. From my personal perspective I own both an iPod Touch and an Android-based Incredible so have access to both App worlds. While the Apple Apps are indeed very good, the "quality" Droid-based Apps in Google's Apps Market are just as good, and in some cases better (from the perspective that so many are available for free). The biggest drawback of the Google Apps is the difficulty in finding the quality apps, because there are so many poor quality (from the perspective of utilization, design, and functionality) apps out there at this point. The Open-Source world is extremely desirable to many people which I'm sure is why HP will be offering both Android and Linux (or other open source) based systems. I think the tablet-based systems have already found utilization in medical environments, and the push for digitized medical records should increase utilization in this environment.

It will be interesting to see how well all these tablets do compared to the iPad and why. How critical to success is something like the App Store? Is a non-Windows OS actually a selling point? Will these tablets find much use as business tools, or will they mostly be for infotainment?
