So its tablet day over in California, and the gadget blog guys aren't as fun as we are here at Nikon Rumors, so I'm going to see if I can't come up with some way to work it into the discussion here.
How, if at all, would you like to use a tablet for photography.
Of course we've long been able to use a Wacom tablet for photo retouching, and they are quite good. A capacitive touchscreen, offers none of the advantages. I would, however, submit that if it could be used as an auxiliary screen for setting the controls in lightroom\aperture,, than it could be pretty compelling. I prefer to edit my photos in full screen mode, and always have various tool pallets floating around on screen. It can be especially irritating on my laptop.
Of course you could always plug in a second monitor, but that still requires you to mouse all the way to the other screen to mess with your tools.
If the folks at apple figure out a way for me to put all those buttons,knobs, and sliders on a tablet where I can interact with them in a way that makes the metaphor much more real, then I could see this having some real traction. A dynamic touchscreen control panel for every program... I could get behind that. After all, its still not any more expensive than the optimus maximus keyboard, and probably a heck of a lot more functional.
