Did you read what you just wrote? Most of those disadvantages are really advantages as far as I'm concerned. Always wanted a larger version of the touch since I got my 2g over a year ago. And all that you said I have realized this as soon as I learned of this device. People are actually going to buy this to replace an Xbox?...a Playstation?....desktop?...22 inch monitor? I don't think consumers are stupid. Especially when you can play with it at best buy. That is so silly. Makes no sense. You should at least compare it to same type device such as HP Slate. It's an Ipad.
