Default Mobile DTP

I'm editor of an association journal, 6 issues per year, typically 64 pages, typically 36 pages in color, working with QuarkXpress under WinXP Pro. This coming summer, I'll be traveling (driving) through Ireland, UK, and Poland. During that time, I will need to work on an issue current for that time.

Thoughts of others would be appreciated relative to the practicality of using a contemporary "tablet" with an external keyboard docking station. I'm attracted to Samsung's Galaxy Tab which has built-in GPS, cameras both ways, video, audio, cell phone, lots of useful features. But is it practical to consider such a device for a one time DTP application.

I'm reluctant to carry my laptop as it is heavy and lacks many of the useful features seemingly present in these new tablets.

Is there an alternative to a "tablet". What's emerging from within the CES this week in Las Vegas?
