  • So big it's unwieldy, Too expensive, Not enough HD content.
  • Size and weight make it better suited to couch than commute, Most apps don't take proper advantage of big screen, Resolution should be higher, considering size and price

In the tablet game, there seems to be only one question - what's the right size? Samsung with their Galaxy Note figured a 5-incher qualified only as a hybrid. The iPad proved people would buy a 9-incher en masse, the HP reaffirmed it, and the Blackberry...

Keep in mind that 13-inch tablet concept which Toshiba was displayed a month ago? Yeah, the gadget is official now and it is known as the Toshiba Excite 13. Before anathematizing the tablet PC as unpractical and pointless, just think about it: at...
