I'd too be more interested in the iPad if that was the case. Actually the
multitouch interface could lend itself well to LaTeX, I'm thinking of some
customizable keyboard/palette for instance. That in combination with a good
app to read and annotate papers could make this a very valuable tool in
academia. It'll at least be interesting to see what people come up with.
