    If the tablet was released, what would be its primary function for you?

    I think it would be great for websurfing...I am forever checking the weather, exchange rates whatever. It would be great to have something bigger than a phone screen to have laying around the house or when just browsing for kicks while on the couch.

    I have long wanted a very thin and light tablet....something Star Trek PADD like but bigger. Sadly if it does come out it will be too thick and heavy for my comfort. But I also think the iphone is too heavy for its size...I like sub90g phones. I like lightweight for anything I will carry in my pocket or have to hold up with one hand for a while like you would a tablet.

    If I needed to type a lot I could always plug it into a dock with a keyboard and use it traditionally or use a regular computer.

    I would create a blank white photoshop document, make it full screen, and write 'Honk if you like cookies' and hold it above my head whilst standing at the side of a motorway...

    ^^ This.

    Probably web surfing like someone else said. And also opening up a blank page in paintbrush sand just doodle with it all day. :)

    Surely this question can't be answered until Steve Jobs gets up on stage and tells us what the tablet is and what it will do.

    It would serve no function for me and I wouldn't buy it. I have absolutely no use for a tablet.

    Whatever Steve tells me to do with it, of course! :rolleyes:

    /sarcasm

    In all seriousness, I doubt I would buy one but if I had one it would probably be for media viewing and maybe some light web browsing.

    But you could use your iPod touch for that unless you need Flash..

    Would love to see it function for email, web browsing, apps, and ebookreader. Basically a larger iPhone would work for me perfectly.
