The device is great for what it is, but it's focus on reusing their 3GS screens and sticking with the lackluster resolution as the OG iPad (for understandable reasons, but that doesn't make it acceptable) made this device compromise after compromise.

It's not on par with devices in this fields in terms of the screen and the only reason the bezel is so small is because the screen had to fit in a device that needs to fit in your hand. But ultimately, it just leaves you with no place to place your hand.

I don't really care about the software that helps it avoid unattended touches, I still wouldn't want to touch the screen when I'm simply trying to hold it. It doesn't feel right.

Along with the price-point, this doesn't really stack up. My grade is based on the hardware and how it uses the software, not the software itself. So I think ecosystem is a lame grade to give on a device score when there already is a separate review for the OS's.
