Buyers should vote with their wallet if they want or not want to buy a device. Simple as that. Also, if you want to jailbreak your device like I usually do, no company should have the right to say no... Not to mention, other closed devices like the Wii, PSP and PS3 also got hacked to run homebrew, although Nintendo and Sony doesn't want you to do so.

I do see some purposes it can make... A slate tablet can be used to manage computers via VNC and SSHing on the go and some other stuff. iPad is probably like Chrome OS, a device that interact with the cloud and it seems these days it's gearing towards like that with cloud services like Google Docs, Amazon S5 or Rackspace, etc.

Yes, the device needs to be more open like the Google Android, which is a perfect example of a open device. Once issue with the Android however is the usual privacy issues with Google.
