I second Luciano's opinion about the SDK: everybody who has an app
published in harbour should have access to the new SDK *before* the tablets
are available! This way even those among us who don't want to purchase one
(I don't have the budget nor any real use for it right now) can test their
app and make adjustments to support a different form factor / more screen
real estate / etc.
