I don't believe that if the tablet doesn't have a stylus it will fail by any means but, it is kind of "essential" to the concept of a tablet in my opinion and it might hurt sales if it didn't, but then again maybe the extra cost of that feature would have hurt sales more.

smart pens replace the stylus completely. link to iGadget via bluetooth. write on any surface with or without ink and a hard copy. much more flexible than a stylus ever was. can do other tricks too.

first tablet was a piece of stone, and first stylus was a chisel+mallet. technology moves on.

No, there made of clay. The styluses pressed into the clay to form cuneiform.
