Commercially viable? I beg to differ.,
The target market for these products is kids. New markets. they are not targetting these products to US. They said " Nice toys for kids" in the press conference.
Therefore the names VIC, Pet etc, mean fuck all to this target. So why use it?
furthermore, aren't there enough Flash memory thingies? Heck, they give it away as freebies! And a 20GB MP3 jukebox? Against the iPods? And buying online music? Against the Apple Music Store?
I'll ask again, commercially viable? Somebody explain this to me, am I that dumb?
