The Inkernet is all abuzz about an article on Microsoft Watch that hints at a "mini-Tablet that can do everything that a traditional Tablet PC can do, plus store electronic books". First of all I should point at that current Tablet PCs are a great platform for reading ebooks- a smaller size would just make that a little more convenient to do. However, if this article proves to be true it sounds very much like the Mini-Tablet PC I defined last year as my "dream machine". A Tablet PC with a smaller form factor would likely appeal to many professionals with its portability, as long as the functionality of the Tablet OS is not compromised in any way. I know I would stand in line to get one of these "minis" if they ever come to market.
