Read entire article.
And to camroidv27: there is an eBook reader app. that makes it an ereader product, albeit barely. Its about the same as calling the iPod touch a gaming machine. Threadbare argument, but one that Apple makes. But again, read the entire article, the end of which I even posted earlier in the thread. The tablet, not the touch, is the competitor.
I wonder if people sit in coffee houses and talk about this pedantic crap when reading the New York Times.
