[vodpod id=Video.15505945&w=425&h=350&fv=] Here, a clip from last night’s episode of The Office. Meet the Pyramid, a new breed tablet which takes the opposite approach to today’s tablet marketing focused on superlatives. The Pyramid is heavy, it has poor battery life and, of course, prominently features the pyramid form factor. Without the optional “memory booster”, the device is “barely three pounds”.

And how much memory does that booster have? 50L. L? You really gotta watch the clip to understand the joke. It’s an amusing (depending on your taste) take on today’s mobile landscape and another wake-up call for Apple’s rivals who so far have managed to produce an admirable range of iPad alternatives which however failed to catch on with consumers – with the notable exception (to some extent) of Samsung tablets.
