For the Mac touch you could reach over the top of the screen from the front, feel the dip and push in while bringing the tablet down towards the flat surface (i.e. a desk) and the rest would pop out to support the tablet perfectly. When you are finished you could lift the tablet back up again (thanks to the gap made by the rest) and use your hand to squeeze the rest back into its closed position. The whole point of this system is all about practicality. The Mac touch won't be made unless it's actually practical, which is why I suggest this idea. It would be one if the tablet defining characters.
I have to say, i don't really like the idea.
Extra bulk on the back and moving parts, takes away from the sealed aspect of (my) conceptualized tablet
I would think the main time one would want the unit in a semi-vertical position would be when you wee using a wireless keyboard with it. For that, I would have a Day Planner sort of binder that holds both tablet & keyboard, with a built in stand.
And while you are thinking of mentioning "what about when I watch a movie?", think about how folks currently do so with the iPod/iPhone lines that support video Most usually are seated when watching, have their unit in their hands, which are in their lap and are looking down into their lap at the video
Also, I am sure Apple would make a svelte dock for the tablet, if you were already carrying around a wireless keyboard (and assuming you were not using a binder to hold the tablet & keyboard) you could also toss the dock into your bag
