Right, so although your complaints may be valid (I'm not saying
they're not - honestly, I'd love my tablet to be faster, which is why
I'm looking forward to an RX-51/71), they're not relevant to any
discussion about Nokia mis-selling the tablets or promising they can
do more than they can.

*That*'s what I was trying to pin down. For all their flaws, I'm not
aware of Nokia saying you could do something which you actually
couldn't - unless you were willing to open X Terminal, fiddle with
configuration files and so on.
