Charles Arthur, writing for The Independent, evaluates the success to-date and future of the much-hyped Tablet PC. “So is the Tablet going to the great computer design graveyard? Probably not, because it is selling very well to a number of specialist markets, like health care and some financial institutions,” writes Arthur. “The tougher question is, are we all (and here I mean all) going to be using Tablet-style machines?” The article notes that back in May Steve Jobs was quoted as saying that Apple has no plans to develop a Tablet PC. “It turns out people want keyboards. When Apple first started out, people couldn’t type. We realized: Death would eventually take care of this,” said Jobs. “We look at the tablet and we think it’s going to fail. Tablets appeal to rich guys with plenty of other PCs and devices already. And people accuse us of niche markets.”
