  Tablet PC: A glimpse of the future?

Toshiba - The Toshiba Tablet PC will provide all the computing power of today's mobile PCs and marry the simplicity of pen and paper. The notebook form factor combined with the support of digital ink -- for marking up and collaborating on documents, taking notes, or converting digital ink into text -- make it a powerful productivity device. Toshiba will target mobile professionals that rely on notebook PCs as a critical business tool. The Toshiba Tablet PC will provide knowledge workers the ability to remain productive in a variety of working environments. The corporate user who works from their office, attends multiple meetings and travels frequently will appreciate the added flexibility of the Tablet PC platform.

Acer - Unique in its convertible design, the TravelMate 100 Tablet PC is a full-featured, ultra-portable notebook that quickly transforms from a traditional "clam shell" mode to "tablet mode" with a simple twist of the LCD panel. Promoting the concept of the PC evolution, the TravelMate 100 provides the capabilities of current notebooks while extending the computer's usage to pen based activities such as taking notes or editing documents. The TravelMate 100 is powered by the Ultra Low Voltage Mobile Intel Pentium III Processor-M optimized for high performance computing with low power consumption.

ViewSonic - The Tablet PC 1100 builds on the proven feature set of ViewSonic's ViewPad 1000, one of the industry's first tablet PCs, which provides users in the office, on the road, or at home the combination of full-screen viewing along with the latest in portable wireless computing.

In addition to Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, the Tablet PC 1100 features the latest Intel Pentium III Mobile technology; an embedded 802.11b wireless solution, and built-in WAN, LAN connectivity for improved signal reception.

Initial Impressions

As expected, there are already articles online discussing the Tablet PC and its embedded Windows XP. So far, the reviews have been less than stellar. For example, this USA Today article is entitled "Tablet PC falls short of a religious eXPerience." This ZDNet article is called "Microsoft's Tablet PC Cool but who's gonna buy it." On the plus side, Paul Thurrott's Super Site for Windows claims that Windows XP Tablet PC Edition is "the best Windows yet."
