I will be buying an 'iSlate' if it's announced on 23rd. The selling point of these gadgets isn't the tech but where they fit in the market. Just as the iPhone converged the PDA and the mobile, the iSlate could converge the kindle and the netbook.
What the companies releasing at CES should worry about though is the percieved better reliability of the Apple iSlate. Playing on a HP Touchscreen for more than 5 minutes makes the screen unreadable without cleaning the fingerprints off, a problem i don't have on the iPhone.
Also i'd back Apple to deliver the complete package. If rummours be true, both software and book publishers have signed up. The App store and iTunes is already in place and the Air has proved how sexy (yes sexy) and functional a laptop could be.
