The PC and Tablet PC - central 10 years from now?

Bill Gates had this to say in response to Todd Bishop’s question about whether the pc will be as central to the pc industry 10 years from now as it is today

"The full-screen device will always play a special role. If you want to write a document, edit a document, you're going to sit at two feet and do that. That's the PC, and the PC is where you're able to take notes. This is the Tablet, I don't know if you've seen this Motion machine. [Gestures to a Motion Computing Tablet PC.] Just think of that two years from now, four years from now, in terms of the thinness, the cost. Every student, instead of having textbooks, they're going to have a Tablet PC, and so the PC is very significant. Microsoft Blog: Gates Q&A: Blog Extra II

To which Motion Computing hardware did Bill Gates point? An LS800 would fit well with his previous showing of an ultra- portable concept computer.
