One of the most discussed trends at CES 2010 was the Tablet PC.
Every single hardware manufacturer I have met there has announced or will announce a Tablet PC in the near future.
From an industry point of view, tablets are not new to the market.
They have been sitting there for such a long time with very low market success due to several factors. First of all they have always been expensive, bulky, almost unusable a with a very very small battery life.
