I’ve been playing with the Zonbu review unit on and off for two months now and I’ve certainly been impressed with its ease of use and clean feel. But I’m a Geek and Geeks tend to be able to set up and play with such toys easily while the average consumer sometimes has trouble. The ultimate ease-of-use test would be to hand a Zonbu to someone who’s not a techie and see how easily they could get it up and running. That’s exactly what my son-in-law did: he opened the box and handed it to his seven-year-old son, Blaise.
Within five minutes, Blaise was playing games. The only thing he needed help with was logging on.
Now that’s what I call easy.
