The Specialized Device

Neven Mrgan nails the position of the apparently-soon-to-be-released-Apple-tablet.
My feeling is that in all these cases, the most noticeable upgrade from the iPhone will be the lack of zoom-and-pan claustrophobia we now experience when we browse the web or play Scrabble. On a device with a 1280 px x 800 px display (or higher!) this will go away. It will no longer feel like you’re viewing the Internet through a keyhole. In table-and-detail based apps like Mail, gone will be the need for constant digging in and out of views; having room for a source list will change things considerably.

Where can I pre-order?
