Remember a a couple of years ago when Ultra Mobile Personal Computers came out? Well if you did, you probably thought they were pretty cool. The reason I believe these will is because they process a cool factor to them. They also have a keyboard built in that many tablets lack. These are also very portable compared to a tablet that you put in your pocket. Like many devices, the tablet will evolve over time into another form or another. A lot of tablets lack keyboards built in. I think the UMPC will replace the tablet in the future because they have about the same features (keyboard, trackpoint/mouse pad etc) that a laptop has but in a much more portable form.
