I’ve written some of my thoughts on the Apple Tablet before, and my hopes that it will not be using the iPhone software distribution model.
But there is another aspect about the tablet I am going to be very curious about; I think it might be the central element to a Apple home media strategy. With the AirPort Express being able to stream music and Apple TV receiving media for the telly, I think the tablet would make a natural controller for a seamless media experience. Get something you see on the tablet onto the TV? Use Apple TV. Want to hear something over the stereo? Stream it onto AirPort express.
I still own (but hardly ever use) a cd3o, because I believe that is a natural way to have your audio. I’ve been reluctant to get an AirPort express, but integration with the tablet? That might be mighty interesting.
Let’s see what happens.
