Tablets running a complete OS have already existed for years. One example is the Samsung Q1 series of tablets running Windows XP or Windows 7. With all the features that the Ultrageeks have been crying about missing on the iPad. But for years tablets have been poor sellers, relegated to a small niche and expensive. In the end these expensive tablets never did well in the market, don't you think Apple took into considering the fact that what Ultrageeks want is not a good market? Since the other companies have been building such tablets for years, only to not do well in the markets. I had the first Q1 and the experience sucked. It could run any windows app.
