Most of Apple's hardware competitors in a nutshell. They cram in as many features as they can to tick off specification lists for reviewers, but then ultimately fail in their execution, relegating them to the ever growing pile of would-be iDevice killers.

I guess companies (and advocates of other platforms) still think they can outsell cake to non-geeks with a list of ingredients. Which is a shame, because Apple has shortfalls too.
