Would you use an IDE on a tablet?
This discussion started as comments on the blog "The Future of Application Development Tools at Oracle"
the online version (too), and a tablet version could us NetBean user a great day!
Can we hope in 9 or 10 come it?

No one in their right mind will use an IDE on a tablet. It might be cool, but it is highly unproductive.
If you need portability, stick to laptops which at least have decent keyboards. Last I checked, software wasn't developed using gestures and mouse clicks. It was generated by typing. Tablets have awful keyboards.
Just my 2 cents

I'm afraid the future belongs to tablets and other highly mobile devices and there is nothing stopping you from having a wireless keyboard to speed things up.
Oracle needs to reboot Java from scratch while it has the money to do so and make major friends with the likes of Apple and Google otherwise it's going to vanish. Ignorance is not a very useful thing.

I have yet to see a tablet that supports wireless keyboards, but even if such a thing existed... what's the point? A tablet with a keyboard is called a laptop (or ultrabook if you prefer). Netbeans already supports that.
What is the value of using such devices for development as opposed to deployment? Similarly, people deploy applications to phones but they would never advocate developing software on the actual phone. Or, I hope they won't. In my view, this is an equally silly idea.
