It's the first gadget Apple has released in a long time that doesn't have a clearly defined purpose. It isn't a music player like the iPod, it isn't a smartphone like the iPhone -- it's pretty much just a platform device that will live and die based on the content that is written for it.
It needs a "killer app" to sell it beyond the hardcore Apple fanatics. So far, I haven't seen one.
