The thing is, Maemo is only necessary on small devices with limited screen
real estate and non-X86-compatible processors. In a tablet of the iPad's
size, there's no reason not to use an Atom and full-blown desktop Linux.

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
iPod Touch and the MacBooks... We'll see in time if it comes across as a
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
a killer feature) than this, regardless of Nokia's current (non-)stance on
tablets :)
