What the iSlate must have

It is not usual that I am topical on this blog, but I will break the mould on this occasion. The iSlate (iTablet, iPad, etc) is due to be announced on Wednesday. Having never owned an Apple product I am unlikely to buy the thing, but I am very interested in whether Apple can pull off another iPod or iPhone. Each of these predecessors, whilst not something I would buy, have stoked the industry into producing a product that I would buy. My hope is that the innovation of the iSlate is that Apple have cracked perfect handwriting recognition and are going to make it mainstream. If they don't, keyboards will lumber on for another decade or two.
