Stick it in your camera and it functions like a standard SD card, but it can do anything else you want, rotate your oldest photos off to your PC/NAS/phone, proxy the card in realtime to a 2TB hdd in your backpack, run a webserver, etc. Fully hackable, upgradable, customisable, and instantly compatible with a billion existing devices.

Dazza: Yes, I'll need to expense $150,000 for the consultants though.

Let them all lie down (1.7m average height) - after all this will take a while.

USA/Russia - War (Good vs Cheap), Detente (Nuclear brinkmanship, Cold war), Disrupt (new economies), Decline (high cost of supporting existing infrastructure/policies)
RIM/Nokia - War (Good vs Cheap), Detente (stuck to their product lines), Disrupt (Touch replaced T9 / Qwerty), Decline (high cost of losing customers & late entry to new markets)
Apple/Google - War (Good vs Cheap), now settling into a comfortable Detente. They're not stupid. They both know there will be a Disruption. It won't come from Microsoft and Blackberry making "me too" phones.

But it's inevitable. One day, some other company will blindside them and Disrupt them utterly.

Far better selection of educational games, not just twitch reflex shooters.
Serves double duty as a media player. Movies, music, Youtube.
Serves triple duty as an internet research / learning tool. How do volcanoes work? Look it up.
With Android 4.2 you can set up individual user accounts for each child & parent, so the whole family can use it. But it's still cheap enough that you can buy one for each person if you wanted.
Honestly, why would you get a console?
Apple: Our iDevice is now FREE but requires an iCloud account. iCloud is $39 a month.
Motorola: Hey, where's our 2.25%?
