Pen Computing Reborn?
It's 9 AM PST Wed. Jan. 27th, 2010, an hour before Steve Jobs take the stage to announce Apple's newest product. I have no inside information, but I am going to speculate on one thing. What if, after putting pen computing out of business with the iPhone, Jobs uses the finally-here tablet to restart the whole domain? If I have a flat notebook sized computer, I want a stylus for it. I gave up finger-painting in kindergarten. I guess the bugaboo is handwriting recognition. But having experienced the iPhone and seeing what they came up with for touch-screen keyboards, I have a feeling they could do a better job than anyone else has ever done with handwriting recognition at this stage of the game.
