Pretty nice, but no pressure sensitivity and I don't think I'd like trying to draw with my finger. Still, it looks fast and I could probably have a lot of fun with it. Hmmm. Maybe my daughters wouldn't actually want one and I could just keep it for myself. Sssshhhhh!

You have pressure sensitivity. The screen senses how "wide" your finger touches. If you press your finger tip becomes bigger. It's a whole new way of doing.

Prize restriction: Subject to the availability of the Apple iPad in your country. Sorry guys!
Does this restriction mean at the date of drawing i.e. only american-based repliers can get one or will you also be including the first batch of international countries too?

Given the benefits of this site I am sure most will complete it anyway, but if you do mean the former then it would be nice to be clear about that and not go for the weasel words phrasing.

Ectaco's JetBook not on list, it must have increased in popularity since the release of the "Lite".

anyways - crossing my fingers

No weasel words phrasing intended. The answer is: the date is not set in stone. If you win and if the iPad is about to be launched in your country (with some official word from Apple), then of course you'll qualify.

The iPad is a mere decoy to the real objective of detecting the Amazon spies. This is indeed harder than the Spring Contest... since THE TRAITORS ARE AMONG US!!!

Color me confused. I can buy one from a legal, known store in my city, but if my country is not officially on the Apple list there is no way to get my hands on the prize?

Exactly. Whether grey imports are legal or not in your country is not relevant; the iPad needs to be available through official channels.
