There are current ultraportable “convertibles” – when we say convertibles, we are talking about Tablet PCs or Tablets with touchscreens, that have a physical keyboard, as well as some kind of mechanism for turning into a Tablet only. Simply having a touchscreen doesn’t really qualify. As we add to our database, and as more manufacturers come out with these (2006 could be a big year for convertibles), expect this list to grow
