In their own words ...
Our surveys show there are a lot of consumers who want a PC-like device that has a keyboard and that boots up without any wait time
But he did admit that the market won't be like super selling one like the iPad, etc but he said "it will sell". One thing is really clear the market for Tablets are increasing like crazy. On the other hand (incoming an opinion... if you can't stand those then better close the window ;-) ) if you're smart and cunning you can "create" a requirement which is actually not a necessity but a foam of manipulated desire which is kinda a philosophy that marketers use I guess.
So let's hope that NEC comes up with an Android tablet that boots like crazy + a unique physical keyboard which outperform the conventional one.
