    I was wondering what is the iPhone missing to be a mac tablet?

    just wanted to hear your opinion. :)

    • larger screen
    • ability to run any program
    • better pen-based input

    What do you think?

    do you think the iPhone will be able to:
    mail/web browsing/music/photos/video iChat/maybe a quick game?/dashboard?

    sorta like a secondary computer.

    mail - yes
    web browsing - yes
    music - yes
    photos - yes
    video iChat - probably not the first version but eventually
    maybe a quick game? - yes
    dashboard - maybe

    Yeah - but a very small screened underpowered one.

    The use of inductive coils for charging and syncing could be implamented in a mactablet to allow for a totally enclosed case.

    Not saying this would be the most practical, but having no openings would allow for a sleek design, although the lack of CD/DVD drive, USB, FireWire ports etc. would def. be a turn off. But a contact less docking station would be amazing...

    And they would have to [mostlikely] add a pen to use as a tablet.

    If the iPhone was about 5 times bigger, allowed use of a stylus pen and allowed you to install any application, then it would be a mac tablet.

    I think one thing this is missing which is a key feature that all laptops cellphone and mactablet will have is a removable battery.

    I purchased an iPhone because it includes the best wide screen iPod, Internet (google maps, email) with one phone.
