I think they are dumb. What is there use? If I want my media (including videos, magazines, etc) with me on the go, I want something that fits in my pocket. If I want something to type email on I want a keyboard. If I am carrying something that large with me, for 9 out of 10 uses a netbook or full blown lap top will be better. The only thing a tablet would be better for is watching videos because of screen resolution. Lets look at this realisticly. How many times is it convenient for you to be carrying around something the size of a tablet (8-10 inches) and you WOULDN'T want the added functionality of a netbook? Even though there is Flash 10.1, flash is easier to interact with on a computer (even a netbook) than on a mobile device. Watching movies is truly the only time I can think of that a tablet would out preform a netbook.
