PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The CrunchPad (and its eventual consumer incarnation the JooJoo) is often presented as proof of obviousness in the iPad's design. For the first time, we have an interesting insider view on this matter - Nik Cubrilovic was involved with Micheal Arrington's CrunchPad project from the very beginning, and has written a lengthy blog post about how the CrunchPad really is proof the iPad's design was obvious.

Apple proved your point by bringing a compelling product to market first.

Actually, the Crunchpad/JooJoo went to market before the Ipad.

Well, he did say compelling product. The Joojoo was anything but, unlike the iPad.

The JooJoo preceded the Ipad to market and it had rounded corners and a shiny, black, flush bezel, just like the Ipad later had.

What exactly do you mean by compelling? Exactly what was not compelling on the JooJoo that was compelling on the Ipad?
