At the introduction of the iPhone, Steve Jobs touted that new device as a “Widescreen iPod”, “Revolutionary Mobile Phone” and “Breakthrough Internet Communications Device”. 

I believe the same type of convergence thinking is going into the tablet.  It can’t just be a “Kindle-killer” eBook reader.  It can’t just be a “Media Pad”.  It can’t be only a Nintendo DS or PSP competitor.   It can’t just be a small NetBook-sized MacBook either.  It has to be all of these things.  At the same time.  Say it together:

  “The best eBook reader.  The best Netbook.  And the best portable media player and gaming device”

Repeat.

We know Apple.  The device will be impossibly thin
