I think when the iPad came out it was largely overshadowed in the tech community as not being ‘enough’, everyone was fixated on it’s lack of capabilities (no Camera / USB / multitasking) — forgetting that it’s not aimed at us.
Potentially the iPad could be massive & it offers some new ways of solving the problems that people who are less savvy with technology face!

there IS a market for something like this, done cheap and made rugged enough for kids though…
