They have a habit of releasing good products to the marketplace too late that are liked by critics but ignored by most everyone else. It does look like a nifty device though; maybe this will avoid the fate of the Zune and Windows phone.
The MP3 and cell market were too late for them to get into, but it's still early for tablets. And this actually setup as being the first real viable alternative to a laptop I've seen. I may spring for one. A tablet can have practical work applcations for me, but without an easily accessible keyboard it's useless, so this fills the niche very well.
