Tablet PC’s in the Movies?  Report a Sighting…

I have had a bit of fun with a couple of movies I have seen recently.  The incorporation of technology as part of the plot or a sideline in movies is always interesting these days.  Eventually, movie themes can become redundant, so along with the arrival of mainstream internet usage, PDA’s, GPS units, all types of computers – you name it, many new ideas in movies have spawned.

So where does the Tablet PC fit in?  Is it getting a piece of the spotlight?  Here’s a quiz:

The Tablet PC has been spotted in which of these films:

a)  White Noise starring Michael Keaton

b)  Alien VS. Predator starring Lance Hendrickson

c) Collateral starring Tom Cruise and Jaime Fox

and the winners are…

b and c!

Alien VS. Predator: Look on the desk!  The Tablet is “docked” and ready for action.

Besides the gun, “Vincent” (Tom Cruise), has his HP Tablet back there!  LOL! 
I Wish we had a screenshot with the Tablet, but keep your eyes open if you watch
this film – you’ll see it.

So have you seen any other flicks with the Tablet PC making its first silver screen debuts?  Please post any other movie “sightings” you have discovered or any of your thoughts!
