But I hope it sells well. Even though it doesn't quite fit my needs, the iPad selling well would prove there is a market for a tablet devices that aren't full PCs and give me more options as competitors rush into the market.
Anyone who needs a PC or laptop already has one, ie. Market saturation yet there are millions of people who still buy laptops every year and that market is increasing. No one has a tablet like this. So the potential is huge. And once Apple gets it's marketing hooks into this, everyone is going to want one.
