    It needs a clip-on for your belt or collar, then it is "practical"

    Yeah the size makes it look like a really oversized phone but not quite big enough to be a proper iPad contender. I don't know. Would get this even if the specs are decent.

    Practical? You are looking at a product aimed at the very unwieldy iPad. I'd say size-wise, this is far more practical as far as handling (unless you have tiny tiny hands). Looks to be in the paperback/hardback range of sizes, which works fine for what I'd be using something like this for.
