This is the kind of stuff that really bugs me. Forget about the fact that this was an author that asserted that everyone should upgrade to Vista immediately when it came out, the tablet has not even been announced, much less accurately described.

"It'll be expensive" and "iPhone users don't need it" and "It'll be a crappy experience" are the kind of myth-repopulating nonsense that make it so that good people with honest intentions look away from Apple, when it may be the right tool for the job. Of course it'll be Apple's job to dispel this stuff, but it just bugs me. This is religious zealotry, not strong reporting.

You'll note that the article is rating at one star out of 5.  Virtually everyone commenting finds it ridiculous to write a critique of a product that nobody has ever seen, with unknown features, specifications, pricing, functionality, etc.

He starts out by criticizing the fact that it's not a phone.  How does he know?  He's created some product in his mind that may have nothing in common with what Apple actually releases.

The real question is why eWeek gives this guy a soapbox.
