Tablet thoughts

Now that I've played with the tablet for a few hours, I've decided that it's OK as a big-screen PDA substitute, and reasonably good as an ebook reader / games player / media player / mini web browser etc., but not a serious productivity tool - I just can't work without a proper keyboard. I'm going to keep it for now as a replacement for the old iPaq I trashed a few months ago, but I still really want something more like my Jornada, but capable of running more serious software, e.g. a slimmed down netbook.
