Waiting? Yes. Waiting for W8? Not necessarily.
With notebook and desktop machines on the one hand and smart phones on the other, we see little need for tablets except in the "nice to have toy + wow the customer / client" niche. For communication purposes (mail, social, web access) tablets at best would be no more than unwieldy smart-phones. On the other side, we have been fazing out desktop computers in favour of notebooks for some years and any tablet coming around the corner will only have a chance if it is able to replace a notebook, able to provide similar computing power and able to run the many applications in use today. Is W8 / Metro the bees knees? Probably not, but perhaps a step in the right direction.
