But I can't help to wonder if they are just a bit late to the tablet fad, haven't new tablet purchases slowed to a crawl because everyone already has one? I'm not saying they won't be able to sell it or anything, I'm just thinking it might lack that X-factor that rocketed the Wii to such success.

Maybe there's something lost in the message, because the idea should be to make programming an attractive option for more people, because perhaps the stigma has been for some time now that only computer nerds (like me) are interested in that that kind of stuff. Granted they also need to realize there's a long path of learning to becoming an effective programmer, but you do have to start somewhere.
