for casual usage, like for mba students who do no more than browse the web, listen to music, watch a few videos, create a few word documents or read a pdf and may play some tiny games when they get a little ambitious....its perfect....but for people like us eg. engineers, programmers, media editing professionals, etc who needs a lot of horsepower under the hood to design, edit, program and even play graphics intensive games, this is no better than a java phone to us.
