Exactly, and what is likely to happen is production of different form
factors as more clone manufacturers realise there are new markets
opening up for these technologies. I know at least one development
company producing a device that will plug into Wifi, large screen and
keyboard based on these technologies with a sub $50 target retail price.

With any new way of working, by definition, it is innovators and early
adopters that make it safe for the early and late majority to venture
into the water.
