This week’s question concerns tablet computers. Apple Computer is strongly rumored to soon unveil a tablet computer able to play music and video, read E-books, and provide Internet access. Several PC makers, including Motorola and Hewlett-Packard, also demonstrated tablet computers at the recent Consumer Electronics Show. While tablet computer proponents believe these devices can carve out a market niche, skeptics say tablet computers will have difficulty competing in a market crowded with netbooks and smartphones as well as laptops and PCs.

What do you think? Can tablet computers make greater inroads in the PC market? Yes or no?
