This is one extra-ordinary person. He has been behind the PC Revolution before Microsoft stole the thunder. He is the man behind Pixar that revolutionized animated films. He is of course the man behind iPod and the iPhone. But will the iTablet/iSlate be his best creation?

Some seem to suggest so.

We think that the product is almost bordering on over-hype. But not too far off. This device could be the swiss-army-knife of gadgets. It might be able to do everything from a video conference to watching TV to play games to reading news papers. It could be the coffee table computer that has been missing for the last two decades.

If the iTablet/iSlate as a platform takes off with its already built-in set of 100,000+ applications including games, there is no stopping this.
