    I don't think any of these style of devices will make it, outside of the ipad. Apple fans flocked to it because it's apple, but in my opinion they serve a very limited use. It's just a giant cell phone, without the cell, and without the storage and functionality of a real computer (including the ability to type with two hands and stare at your screen comfortably) these things will inevitably become an expensive novelty gathering dust.

    I like this better than iPad, it’s not big so it’s easy to carry.
