    They seem to have good specs and look like a good transition devices that would be more useful than a phone, but less mess than a notebook (or ultrabook) most of the time.

    It will be interesting to see how "cloud" apps progress for power users on the developer side.  We may all wind up back in the virtual terminal world after a 20 year cycle - that would be bizarre (spent many years setting up VT 100 emulators...).

    I think graphics types like me are stuck with stand-alone devices.  I can't see distributed apps making headway there (though Adobe seems to be trying) - living in a rural area with fast, but unreliable Internet makes that sound scary.
