1) Too expensive. A USB DTT stick is from £10
2) Since is connects only with WiFi, why only for iOS?
3) Most locations need external aerial. The Telescopic aerial should either be on a connector, or there should be a separate connector.
4) Streaming video on WiFi is very demanding. A direct dongle on the iThing and option for an external aerial would work FAR better, give far better battery life and cost a fraction.
It's basically a $6 DTT chip and a portable WiFi point. It's a nearly pointless shiny toy.
Though Elgato do make the only decent Apple Mac OSX TV tuners. But then for Windows or Linux you can use many more (almost any on Linux).
Why pay £150?

Although TV catchup is brilliant, it doesn't really make sense where this product is aimed - i.e. outside of a free/cheap wireless net connection. The 3G iPads would rack up a fairly hefty bill, and wifi iPads would be stuffed.
