Neither is the iPad. Just because apple has a simple UI that doesn't mean it's a toy. You don't own one so you don't know how capable they are. Or may be you own but don't know how to fully exploit ur ipad.

Simple UI has got nothing to do with it being a toy..

Look at W8, its Tiles are simpler than the fancy static icons, but it can do more..

wanna know why the iPad is a toy? because it can't even transfer a document over bluetooth, can't even download a song..

have you seen the new iPad ad? yeah, the one that it is used as a Piano toy..

It can download songs and movies. There are so many download clients that will also playback your downloaded content

so, doesn't that make it more like a toy and not a productivity device? Media player, isn't that for fun? and what fun associated with? yes, toy..

not only in their marketing campaign but also in their product, not like some fashion tablet or phones
