I think the usefulness of this device will be defined less by its form factor than by its software.

The first gen iPhone did well even without the App Store, there's no way this device could do that.

But you're talking about a multitouch tablet in your hands (or on your desk or whatever) for $500. Applications will become available that you _cannot_ do right now on an iMac / Mac book / Mac Pro for any price.

When one of those apps becomes so cool that you feel you have to have it, then all the other things that this device seems to do moderately well will become much more attractive.
