Motion’s Mike Stinson on Tablets as Purpose-Built Devices

Motion_C5It seems like just about everyone is weighing in on Tablets here in the rush to tomorrow. (I guess that can work both metaphorically and literally.) Motion Computing’s Mike Stinson (VP of Marketing) has an interesting post on the Motion Computing Blog called Year of the Tablet? Focus on Purpose-Built Devices.

His point? Apple and others rushing to get Tablets out the door are doing so as purpose-built devices (form follows function) and the function is all consumption driven. Of course, Motion is tooting its own horn here, (as it has every right to do so) but it is interesting to see at least some commentary from some of the folks who were involved in the Microsoft Tablet PC days on all of this.
