Oh. Another toy I won't have :P

You can add third column in the midddle:

I also remember that weird thing I had when I was a kid, it was a brown slate in a box with some kind of drawing system under it, by turning two knobs you could move the pen in X and Y axis and leave a black trace. But you couldn't make it stop drawing, so all lines were connected... it was nearly useless. Wiping was done by shaking...

Get a soldering iron and you can make it! (+ write a driver and modify all apps to work with it, oh yeah, the thrill!). Actually the software will be most of work anyway...

Extremely funny! But the iPad can come with 3G and possibly GPS

Still funny

Blackboard can have a map and a compass pasted to the back... as accurate with GPS after a little training.

and both, ipad and blackboard, don't come with a keyboard. the whole point of the portable devices stuff for me is that i don't have to rely on slow handwriting but could use fast typing! as long as there aren't blackboards and ipads with keyboards, a sheet of blank paper beats them both in usability and portability, it even has an intrinsic compression system - folding.
 
map and compass combined with an external optical sensory system is much more accurate than GPS! my built in positioning system tells me with absolute precission where i am: Here.
