From my conversations with NuVo at CEDIA, the P30 is "just" an Android-based display. It just runs the NuVo app, but allows anything else to run, too.
I haven't seen it outside the show floor to see that in action, but assuming that's correct, it is a fantastic solution for the wall-mounted touchscreen / keypad question.
What NuVo, Sonos, etc. need to do next is to add a "6ft interface" mode to their apps, so that the display can turn into a proper metadata display for the room, but still allow for the menus and content navigation to work when needed. Perhaps those menus need to be enlarged for that mode, too, since you can't move the "tablet" to the normally expected angle and distance... (and this really should be an obvious addition to these apps, especially for NuVo, since it replaces existing keypad/display functionality)
