The article referred to in Wednesday morning news makes perfect sense.

Imagine an iMac as easy to carry around as a hardback novel - all screen and no visible guts. I read books all the time and if it was as easy to get one direct rather than go to the library or bookstore for a low price (the author could still get royalties - it's just a matter of cutting down the printing and distributing costs), and it was as electronically tactile as paper book, I would love one for that reason alone.

Combine that with all the functionality of an iPhone and an iMac and the portability of a book ...

An iPhone costs around a grand and an iMac two. I'm sure Apple can produce a tablet for less. The technology exists already.

I reckon a tablet is a certainty and it's coming soon.
