$3.7 million dollar tablet?

Quote:
Even though the $3.7 million price looks a bit exaggerated to me, it should be clear that we aren’t talking about an iPad decorated with diamonds,” Alexander Patsay, a Moscow-based director of program management at software developer Parallels Inc. said by phone. “An automated work station for a CEO,” if its integrated with server software similar to that designed by SAP AG, “could be indeed quite a complicated and costly solution.

This is absolutely absurd. I bet once all is said and done, this souped-up Ipad will be technically worth no more than 2-3000$. Most of that cost must go to developers dedicated to that task alone. Yet I can't see how that cost could climb so high !!!

I would think it more like the desk used by Ed Dillinger in Tron than a iPad type thing

We're talking serious customized dashboard etc. That money could be reasonable but the actual end result will probably seriously lack in fulfillment of requirements so the contractor won't get paid. This is Russia after all.
