Yes, same as with a regular computer.

> and presumably the N800 would too, 

Well, not necessarely. Regular computers have screens on tables because
it makes sense but also because they are heavy and tied to cables. This
is not the case of the tablets. 

You might find alternatives to keep the screen at your desired distance,
like the wind instrument musicians having the partiture in front of
their eyes always. It would require some DIY nowadays, but perhaps you
have hit a use cases where tablets are more competitive than regular

In fact music stands are already used to support computer monitors:

for a smaller device would be an option, you might still search in the
music field i.e. http://www.zzounds.com/item--QLKMS303 although perhaps
you would find more and cheaper alternatives customizig camera tripods.
The N800 would accept easier simple solutions since it has already a
stand usable i any horizontal surface.

Please share your progress if you follow these or another paths. It is
good to know about use cases where tablets are more suitable than
regulat computers.

And more importantly for the context of this list, share any specific
problems you find at a maemo/software level for users with eyesight
