Thank you David. Congrats, from the preamble it sounds like a very in-depth article. Unfortunately available to subscribers only ;(

Whoops--here is a clear copy

Sorry about the "subscribers only" thing. I hate when they do that. Here, for forum members, is another copy:

Thanks David!

It is all I've been trying to say in a clear well written way.

There is one thing you forget about the Iliad that is a major point in its price, function and marketing approach. You can write and draw on it. As a cabinet maker this makes it a powerful creation tool while explaining design concepts to my clients. This is a good feature to promote in the business community.

You're right about the article, well written for the interested parties without any hint og geekyness :-)

That's an interesting point, yvanleterrible ... but is this interesting to the user?

David - as an academic user - do you see yourself annotating documents, or taking notes on the device? For you is the ability to write on the thing a real selling point?

Nice review David,

Clear, and very well written. Showing both the faults, and the advantages in proper context.
