The Great Slate Race!

Since the introduction of the Apple iPad, there has been a large increase in the number of slate or tablet computers being announced. Archos, widely known for the MID devices are clearly making a play for the tablet sector and Toshiba with their range of Portege detachable touchscreen laptops are seen to be moving down towards smaller slate devices. Lenovo, with the IdeaPad U1, a laptop with a touchscreen that can be detached and used as a handheld tablet computer appear to be covering all bases. The huge surge of interest in this form factor can only be attributed to the iPad. It's becoming clear that more people are contemplating the use of slate and tablet computers over netbooks and even regular laptops. After many false starts, it looks like the age of the keyboardless computer is finally here.
