I have to admit, there is a serious point there.

The problem with the Windows Mobile Pocket PC, or anything like that, is that it was put together and conceived by folk who thought it was some kind of 'calculator' device, on steroids. I remember, it had about three or four circuit boards, all wedged together like one would go about making a ham and salad sandwich, if you decided to put an LCD screen as your top deck, and stick a power supply into it.

That's not the same direction as the Apple iPad engineers went in, I know that much for sure.
