Wasn't Dave Bowman receiving well wishes from his family on his Ipad while on his way to Jupiter?

I think Riker and Data used it on Star Trek - The Next Generation, too.

No, that was an HP slate, which is still in development.

Nope again. Data would use something that runs Android.

For Clarke and Kubric to be off by only ten years out of a forty-year prediction with this degree of specificity is pretty darned good in my book (pun indended). And I dare you to find a significant difference between a flip-phone in walkie-talkie mode Gene Roddenberry's "communicator" in the original Star Trek ...

I have an issue of popular Mechanics showing predictions from the preceding 50 years. One of them shows a woman shopping from home on a display screen that looks remarkably like a computer showing a web site. The prediction next to it didn't come true, however. It showed a housewife hosing off her living room furniture.

I'll bet that all this time you thought the Motorola logo was just a stylized letter "M".
