For a moment, lets assume that this tablet runs a modified version of iPhone OS and that the rumors of using a semi-pa chip is also true. Can such a device succeed? Let's stop for a moment and think about the success of the iPhone. The iPhone, IMO, has been successful because of the applications. If this tablet is going to run a modified version of iPhone OS what is it going to offer that the ipod touch/iphone doesn't already offer? I know some people would like an ipod touch with just a bigger screen, but the majority of people I would guess would want more for a device that will possibly cost $700-800. I would guess multi-tasking would be one of the things this mythical device would offer. The semi-pa chip should be much faster and capable of providing multi-tasking while the larger size of the device would mean a larger battery. If it's running a modified version of the iPhone OS the I'm going to guess that it should run all of the current crop of applications. That's a great start but it has to do more than just multi-task and run the current crop of iphone applications for enough people to buy this and make it a success. The $700-800 price tag is a HUGE hurdle. For a bit more you can have a full featured Snow Leopard laptop. What do the majority of people use a compute for though? Think about it, the majority of people do just a few things on laptops: view photos and movies, listen to music, browse the web, and office applications. If this computer is good enough to multi-task and run modified versions of iLife and iWorks will that be enough to convince someone to buy a mac tablet as a second computer. Research shows that people who buy netbooks buy them as second computers, not first computers. A mac tablet running a full office suite, a full web browser with flash, and all of the current crop of iPhone applications will be much more powerful than the current crop of netbooks running Vista or XP. So can a mac tablet be a success with a price tag of $700-800?
