You said:"The 'T' isn't mass-produced at a factory in Asia, but by hand in a town in Germany."
It isn't made in Germany, it's made in Portugal (Famalicão). Not that it makes any difference. Probably goes through additional QC in German anyway...
Why is this on dpreview? Are they gonna cover every smartphone and tablet announced or just the ones from a particular brand? If they're sponsored by that brand they should make that clear, if not it makes no sense!
I really like this site, watch it almost daily since 2006 and it's the first time I write something negative about it. I think the iPad 3 is a great tablet but shouldn't be featured on this site!
