No idea as I am also software based; but sharing some experiences, that admittedly were on a far longer time scale from when I used to repair consoles whilst at uni (swapping out burnt out cd drives and blown psus) It very quickly became apparent how Sony were driving cost out of the Playstation as they managed to combine things onto a single chip and shrink everything, The last ones in the big grey box were near enough the same motherboard as the smaller white psone http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PlayStation_(console)#Consumer_models Similarly the very first Dreamcasts were watercooled! I would have thought that these modern tablets though are on such short timescales tooling the factory would be problematic? perhaps if your are building a brand like Nexus or Galaxy though its worthwhile and effective use of the advertising budget?

Great post! It purely needs the marketing effort of someone like Apple to commoditise sms, however I think that slaying that sacred cow might make people in certain circles stand up and take notice! Blackberry Messenger, Gtalk and http://www.whatsapp.com/ (cross platform so far more interesting) effectively do already offer 'unlimited texting' it would just need a well oiled PR machine to make it obvious to every man in the street....
