My wife said they don't work. She prefers the ones with wings. Maybe because without a USB port they are about as useless.

Expensive to leave behind in the coffee shop plus I would not know what to do with one. i still do not know how to text on my 10 year old phone but it does work as a telephone very well and nobody would bother to steal it.

well, I'm not sure about that, but at work I'm playing with this touchscreen:

Wholesale-8" VGA AV Touch Screen TFT LCD Monitor

for $130, its amazing taps into my current laptop, and works exactly like its supposed to.

I got one of these some time ago, I was originally looking for an E-book reader. It works very well for this purpose, cost less and does a whole lot more
7" LCD TouchScreen Windows CE5.0 UMPC PDA Laptop w/WIFI on (item 120553413401 end time 13-Apr-10 17:00:58 EDT)

They also make a 10.2" model
10.2" Touch Screen Windows 7 PDA Laptop UMPC Notebook on (item 110516287618 end time 11-Apr-10 18:30:19 EDT)

They don't have the Apple stylish design but they do what they are supposed to do well enough - including multitasking and Flash.

There are a great number of tablets being released this year. This one looks very promising as does the HP Slate (running Windows 7)
Here are the other major iPad Alternatives Many of them blow the iPad away in performance.

I looked at the iPad when I wanted a book reader. Got the Sony eReader instead and am very happy with it. But then, I don't really need anything else. Plus, it's much easier to read since it's not back lit. When I use a back lit screen for long periods I tend to get eye fatigue and even headaches, but the so-called e-paper technology has taken care of that. And the new one uses a touch screen technology.
