Apple iSlate should be this simple. With an aluminum or white polycarbonate body, perhaps even rubberized, and no bezel whatsoever, with a very thin black frame. It really doesn't need anything else. Ogle its simple beauty in the gallery.

I like it. I would like the screen to reach the very edge of the device, but that's probably not possible with the current technology.

But where's the button, some may ask? I think that, for the iSlate, they can actually pass on the physical home button, since it doesn't make much sense in a 10-inch format. I mean, where do you place it? In the bottom center? Two home buttons on the sides? One? On one corner? What corner? Instinctively, I don't think it's needed. And they always implement a hard-to-reach physical reset button on the back.
