Tablet PCs released

— 12:12 PM on November 7, 2002

Today marks the official launch of Microsoft's Tablet PCs, and there's plenty of coverage to check out. Tablet PCs look promising, but the initial wave of devices isn't cheap. Ringing in at over $2,000, the Tablet PCs don't look like such a great bargain next to low-cost notebooks costing half as much; even Apple now has a $999 iBook.

The Tablet PCs do boast wireless connectivity and handwriting recognition, which in addition to lightweight designs and improved battery life, should make for a pretty portable platform. Still, I'm not sure just how well these expensive Tablet PCs will sell, especially equipped with relatively slow processors.
