Just rambling here. I am sure there was a good reason for not advertising...
I agree. Living in Germany, I might not belong to the biggest target group, but I haven't seen ads in the popular academic papers and that's a target group.
For sure, the iPad is more popular (and the old one not much more expensive), and not much can be done about that. But it doesn't have Flash, so that should have been a focus. And the iPad has many developers, because... there's a free development kit around. Last but not least, the iPad doesn't have epaper, so I wouldn't want to read on it for too long.
