The ones out there, do work. Essentially they are a smaller form of a laptop and many of them operate the same as a laptop would.

See below for a tour and there's also a showcase as well (with like 10 different manufacturers/models of tablet pc's and you can pull down the models and choose which specs to see -- Acer, Compac, Fujitsu, NEC, Toshiba, etc.):

Actually I had seen this... but I don't think all of the products show are out in the market yet. Do you know which are?

if your talking smart displays i would not recommend any yet

the laptop ones are good but the ones you connect to a desktop machine like a tft you can then move around are pants - we have been playing with one at work - has an 400mhz xscale chip and wirless 11mb/s lan and to be honest they are good for inet and that stuff but you cannot stream FMV over the wireless lan acceptably(jerky image etc) this is due to the processor/memory in the smart display not the wireless lan

the next gen ones will be nice but at the min the only thing i would even consider would be the laptops which you spin the screen round on and act like a tablet the other type are not worth it yet
