32GB or 64GB of Flash storage in a network drive - you connect by 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi - that smaller than a smartphone. Kingston's compact, lightweight kit provides extra storage for content you may want to access on the move - handy if you bought a low-capacity tablet with no SD slot, or you have content that doesn't play in iOS' native players. It's battery powered for use away from the mains. The power pack is good for four hours continuous usage; it's charged through a mini USB port, which is also how you get files onto it. It can connect simultaneously to other wireless networks so your tablet can stay connected to the net.

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard
Bluetooth keyboards are ten a penny, but if you find you need to use one regularly, there are better options than a generic BT 'board you can sling into your bag for emergencies. Case in point: Logitech's Ultrathin offering, which locks magnetically onto the front of the iPad 2 and 3 - as per Apple's Smart Covers - to protect the screen. When you want to type, just pull it off, slot the tablet into an angled slot, and you're ready to key in copy. It too works with Bluetooth, and Logitech promises six months of usage from a full charge of the built-in, micro USB recharged battery.

Re: no less functional than a laptop
Sure a tablet is the wrong tool for the job if you are churning out code, but its getting to the point where is not as silly as it sounds.
I work on a large business application, and I can log in via a VPN and view/compare/edit code, look at code package release status and issue tracking systems perfectly well via Safari my (3rd gen iPad). Most tools I use have Web interfaces or SSH access. External keyboards help when editing code, but not a big deal for quick patches.
I can fire up my iPad and be looking at the system status far faster than my HP ProBook (running Win 7) wakes from sleep and logs in.
Only remaining downsides at the moment is no native SQLDeveloper style client (though I haven't looked for one to be honest) and not being able to use external screens effectively. At the end of the day, the only major differences between my laptop and iPad for development are the peripherals (i.e. screens) and OS. Peripherals are getting less important, and I develop across multiple OS"s anyway using VM's so the underlying OS is pretty irreverent
Sometimes the best computer is the one that you have on you.
Okay not everyone is a twat then, fair point. There are some people who would like their iPads on the wall for various reasons, I think cooking and boats come under my small flat point though seeing as both tend to be small in the main.
I am not unimaginative either - I just think having a tablet computer on the wall looks shit. I imagined it and in my mind's eye it looked shit, sorry.
