Even better for more consumers, a number of apps to be added/developed for the 4700 may be portable to the 4500. Bonus for all those wanting Clouds and more.

Still.. looks like a major step up from the 4500.

It’s not the same product as the ‘4500; it contains an integrated hard drive.
There are no pricing details.
