Cheaper Tablet PCs are coming

— 3:06 AM on July 11, 2003

DigiTimes is reporting that IBM and Toshiba may team up to produce a low-cost Tablet PC. The low-end Tablet PC could sell for as low as $1,299, which is quite a bit cheaper than other Tablets on the market.

It turns out that IBM and Toshiba may not be the only ones coming out with low-end Tablet PCs. HP and Acer both reportedly have cheaper Tablets in the works, which could help generate interest in the platform. More common and widespread wireless networks could help Tablets take off, too, but I wonder how successful the platform can be under even the most perfect conditions.
