I don't know what phones have to do with this, I'm interested in a real computer in an advanced tablet format that costs maybe a few hundred more than a top-of-the-line IPad and offers so very much more.

I think smartphones have shown (most) people they don't need/want a "real computer" for their mobile needs. iOS and Android do what they need but do suffer from the small screen. Hence the interest in tablets.

Now, I do understand where you're at. If I was doing a lot of travel, I might be interested in a "real computer" with the tablet profile for myself. Having said that I'm not convinced it offers anything compelling that I don't have with my existing Win 7 laptop.

On the other hand, my wife and kids are totally happy with iOS for their mobile needs. They have no interest in a "real computer" for mobile and I think they're probably much more representative of the market today.
