Loren’s Tablet predictions for 2007

Loren Heiny, a Microsoft Tablet PC MVP, has posted a great list of Tablet PC predictions for 2007. He’s got some really good insight and thought into the predictions.

I agree wholeheartedly with Loren’s predictions, especially with 2007 being the year of touch. I’ll give my list a little more thought and post them up in the next couple of days.


Among all of his predictions, I find this one the most intriguing:

12. The Tablet market will consolidate. Expect at least one Tablet ISV or OEM to earn newscylces as they are acquired–inspiring some analysts and investors to take a fresh look at the Tablet market. On the other end of the spectrum, I expect to see some  Tablet PC models and Tablet apps fade away–very likely well known ones.

Interesting. Who would you expect to get acquired, and what Tablet PC models and applications do you see fading away?


Take a read and let us and Loren know what your Tablet predictions are for 2007.
