A sore spot indeed, but I have a few myself.
However, we are where we are, and mobile phones are little mini computers many of us never leave home without and are like our little 'puppet masters' - they keep us in constant contact with social media, we have forgotten those things called 'maps' and listen to our GPS navigation, use those pretty good 'snapshot' cameras, hope on the internet to check out a retro gaming review site, an e-reader, a comic book reader, play some games and download a thousand and one apps you never knew you didn't need but are in the digital storefront and Arnold Schwarzenegger likes them.
Given where we are, this little device is a good step. I would prefer built in (slide out) d-pad and buttons, but I doubt we'll see that on the major brands. They seem to just want a few models, and to roll out new editions each year of those.
