Well, and the new Airport Extreme, but I guess he didn't mention that.

You don't think the iPhone is a tablet? It's a computer operated by its screen, targeted at a specific set of uses (i.e. mobile telephony, internet access, music/video playback, taking & displaying photos). I think that pretty much describes tablet computers. There's no such thing as a general purpose tablet computer, because no-one wants one. General purpose computing currently requires input devices people are familiar with, i.e. a keyboard and a mouse.

It has been. It's just called the "iTunes Store" now.
