For me, price and OS. I don't want to spend more than €500 on any device and most certainly not on a device that won't even be useful as a pc-away-from-my-pc. So, no Apple or android... If it's either of those, I don't want to pay more than €200, as I won't be able to do a lot with them (while if I had a windows tablet, I'd be able to install all kinds of applications, which I use daily).

I would also like a full OS on a tablet (especially for anotation and calculations) but such tablets *points at WeTab* cannot achieve the form factor and weight of the iPad =( Or perhaps they will *points at HP's tablett* But one thing that I would certainly like is a tablett with full OS (no apple please) with the same cooling of the ipad (aluminium back) cause I really hate fan noise and I'm pretty sure that having a fan moving around with the tablett is bad and won't last for long.

Full OS is indeed critical. I wouldn't mind OS X, but iOS doesn't cut it.

Perhaps will see some interesting devices being introduced at CES2011. Of course, god only knows if most prototypes will ever ship (Skiff & Que, anyone?).

Fujitsu had two new slate (Win 7) protos at Ceatec:

No specs or dates yet, probably more info at CES or CeBit.

The WeTab/ExoPC/bModo/2goPad variants with Atom N450 seem to be coming before end of the year, but have low res, glossy displays and battery life below 5 hours.

The low res I can live with, the battery life below 5 hours I can live with. The glossy displays are horrible.
