I'll provide the alt text for that image: "Please view with Chrome, Firefox, or Safari" and the background image is an Android web view, and also a Link Bubble that opened after the first popup happened.

I can assure you, having visited their crummy website, that the content was not so magical that anyone else should bother opening Chrome.

Okay, it looks interesting, but what on earth is this talking about?

Looks wonderful! I've ordered one just now, but I'm incredibly disappointed to find after clicking 'order' that I'm not expected to receive it until the end of March.

* Update * -- if you watch all of the videos, it eventually shows you that it's not shipping right away.

if nothing else, the charger looks quite cool. https://waytools.com/store/showroom/info/nanocharger/tablet
