Device of the year- UrbanMax is definitely hot

There is no question that the one single device that has stoked my gadget lust more than any other recently is the UrbanMax.  This is the concept notebook/ slate device that Intel rolled out at the IDF to get OEMs interested in making one of these.  The sliding screen is a great way to convert from notebook configuration to slate mode and it looks to me like Intel put a lot of careful thought into the design.  Gizmodo recently played with one of these and took some really good photos of the UrbanMax and admitted it looks very practical a design and highly mobile.  It sounds like the touch screen is not good for inking, something that if Intel (or someone else) addressed could make this the killer device of the year.
