" It was so close I could taste it," he said in his posting. "Two weeks ago we were ready to publicly launch the CrunchPad. The device was stable enough for a demo. It went hours without crashing. We could even let people play with the device themselves - the user interface was intuitive enough that people "got it" without any instructions. And the look of pure joy on the handful of outsiders who had used it made the nearly 1.5 year effort completely worth it.""
I'd say touch up the interface and release anyway. Sure Christmas would have been nice, but there will always be geeks wanting a page sized readable format. That would be excellent. I would use that for reading pdf files and comic book files around the house.
As it is now I have to take my laptop, turn the display, and I have keyboard off to one side... what a mess...
