But besides that, what _do_ people think they're getting? If you're the savvy type who would upgrade, you're certainly going to have a look inside; and if not, what does it matter? The specifications are the most important thing, and no effort has been made to hide them. People pay thrice this for handheld devices with as much less in computing power!
What I think we're seeing here in reactions is simple as this: "Durr, Zog see small-small square in big-big rectangle. Ugh, why they put so small-small in so big-big?"
No offense, Neanderthals.
If you're not the savvy type, you probably don't understand the specs all that much either, and just look at the box. The box tells people they're getting one thing, when they're really getting something else. Good thing the savvy ones here can tell the un-savvy ones what's up.
Have you been eating that sandwich again?
