Re: Doesn't seem too much interest from manufacturers
I didn't say 500 would change their life but they would've been used by up to 1/3 million people a year which you would expect to have some residual benefit.
As the defacto tablet for many is the iPad it could allow their device to be seen and used by many people who could have their purchase influenced by them.
Maybe I'm just too used to other markets where penetration in a competitive market is seen as somewhat valuable even just for brand awareness. In some cases they were asking for more than the retail price for a single unit, I guess due to the risk of having to ship a quantity of units and risking multiple returns.
