I'd be surprised if we don't see daylight viewable, waterproof tablets in the not to distant future if someone isn't already making one. It just seems a logical extension for Garmin or Raymarine to do.
I doubt they would replace fixed ones . Thats why they are making them bluetooth and wireless in as small as 7" models so you can stream them into your i pad or droid.

There are some advantages to having the chartplotter fixed at the helm or nav station in a navpod.

Start with its a nice clean streamlined look and installation. Easy to run power and keep it powered. Less suseptible to damage as not only are they made for marine environement, so are their charging/ power connections.

That doesnt mean there isnt usefullness in the other.
