Interesting point of view! However I do think that tablets could be great for RPGs as:

It widens the audience for the games (there will probably be more tablet owners than console or gaming pc owners soon)

The people who have tablets aren't your typical gamer ie they will more likely to be interested in the interactive story that most RPGs are.

You don't have to be as 'twitchy' at the controls of an RPG, usually compared to a MMO or first person shooter.

Whet I'm saying is essentially that you could imagine KOTOR being quite easily ported to the iPad for example.
