They look analytically at the big newsthis week of the Acer/ Gateway merger and how this might impact theTablet PC space. Dell is entering the Tablet market later this yearand the impact on the enterprise market is fodder for meaningfuldiscussion. Marc wants to know when we’re going to see an applicationthat is fitting of the capabilities of the Tablet PC and laments thefact we haven’t seen one yet.
Tablet PCs aren’t penetrating the enterprise muchbut employees of those enterprises see the benefits of the Tabletimmediately upon exposure. Maybe Dell will help penetrate that marketso employees can get their hands on them.
James is testing the HP 2710p Tablet PCand discusses how this Tablet straddles the enterprise and consumerspace. Does the 2710p stack up? Inquiring minds want to know. Theconclusion the hosts reach is that the trackstick is "flatly nubby".You have been warned.
