I mentioned it in my mail. I think the hardware is impressive however, it is 
trying to be everything while at the same time being promoted as an application 
specific device rather than a general purpose netbook replacement (or at least 
that's the impression i get from the buzz surrounding it). Ultimately, the cost 
of the device shall finally decide its success.

Like I also mentioned in my mail, I think it might go the simputer[1] way (ie: 
might not make the impact it ideally should), but then again, I've also been 
known to be wrong ;-)
