You know, this lack of "physical" (capacitive I think you mean) buttons has me worried. Is this device rumored to have NO capacitive buttons at all? Meaning ALL controls will be via the touch screen area as in Honeycomb?

If this is the case I have huge usability concerns. Though there is plenty of room on tablet for a UI that has no capacitive buttons, on smaller phone displays (yes even 4,5", though ICS will be used on many smaller sizes) I definitely feel it will immensely detract from usability. Time will tell, I am hoping they leave the capacitive buttons where they are ..
