In fact, I've read it *still* has a dedicated following among field
reporters who
appreciate the ruggedness and "instant-on" capabilities.

But before falling lockstep into dismissal of anything that isn't the
eMate; let's keep
in mind that this new device is designed to meet the same (perceived)
needs of the
educational market that the eMate was designed for. (Not every school really
needs or can even afford a fleet of iBooks.) For this use, it may be perfectly
adequate. (I think the only notable omission is a closeable lid, or
something else to
protect the screen.)
