The major thing wrong with that article is the premise that the reader already has an iPhone (or other portable email device) and a Kindle.
I think that's a correct premise for Apple's target market. Maybe I'm missing something but why would you buy one of these instead of a netbook or a Macbook Air?
I've been toying with the idea of buying a Kindle or equivalent for a while. This fills that need* plus it'll handle email and browsing. So instead of taking 5 books and a laptop
on vacation, I can just take this.
*Still a bit heavy at 1.5lb.
If you're viewing it as a laptop replacement you'll need the optional keyboard. And the optional screen holder while you're typing.
ETA - I'm not joking. In the Times live blog they mentioned that these accessories would be available.
