One of the reasons...

And why I wouldn't just want to buy a dummy external monitor, is because NO high resolution (>=1080p) sub-12" stand-alone monitors exist, whereas the Google Nexus is 10.055” @ 2560 x 1600 (300 ppi), and similarly for the iPad.  What a shame and waste not to be able to get video natively via HDMI or Display Port input into a nice high-res tablet.

So the motivation for me is to get both the high resolution, and to couple various mobile apps, or even just a second monitor for the my laptop.  For the last, there are various WiFi screen sharing apps that one can download on laptop (host) and tablet (client), but you potentially introduce resolution loss, and tremendous latency.  For example,

YES, so I too want HDMI input INTO tablet!  There is no substitute for this capability.
