This is also my point of view.

While a Maomo phone with a reduced size is certainly a good idea to 
bring Maemo to a new audience, I hope that the next Internet Tablet will 
have a size between the N800 and the N810, but with a screen that use 
all the surface. Bigger screen make the experience more enjoyable in 
every aspect.

Photos and movies will look better. Reading will be easier. And a new 
task switching schema that allow the applications the be all the time 
full screen is also a very good point to efficiently use the screen.

Personally I expect the next Internet Tablet to be usable as a phone. 
The greatest gadget it can have is a bluetooth headset pluggable into 
the case like the stylus is. This will definitively cover absolutely all 
my current needs. But I understand that this is a engineering nightmare 
to make a such thing. :-)
