They still could have opted for a Macbook Air variant with a swivel screen. 
Covers everything the iPad does but retains the abilities of a full blown 
notebook. But then again, with the Apple price premium, that would cost an 
arm and a leg, so I guess this was the compromise to fill the gap between the 
iPod Touch and the MacBooks... We'll see in time if it comes across as a best 
or worst of both worlds :) I still think a Maemo tablet would have a much 
bigger appeal to me (where easy porting of desktop apps to it would really be 
a killer feature) than this, regardless of Nokia's current (non-)stance on 
tablets :)
