Building Our Own Tablet PCs and UMPCs

Loren Heiny picked up a great piece by CNET on the “white book” pc makers. Loren takes it further by asking if we’ll one day build our own Tablet PCs / UMPCs, and lays out the challenges, but why it will be a good thing for the market and the mobile space.

But it’s not because Intel and others haven’t tried to inspire this market. They have. They’ve tried working with the channel to bring about standard notebook components. But it hasn’t worked. Why? Because I think Intel and others have focused on lagging designs rather than the prosumer market. That’s where the action is.
