iPone vs. iPad

I came across the following picture on Facebook. I thought it was cool to compare a slate to today's iPad. When I was young (in Burma), every Burmese kid used slates to practice writing and maths. Apple probably stole the idea and invented iPad. Just kidding ;)

Let me explain you the joke in the title, iPone vs. iPad. Burmese word for 'slate' is 'ကျောက်သင်ပုန်း'  [ʧaʊʔ θì̃ bóʊ̃]. The last piece in the word, [bóʊ̃], sounds like "bone". Hence the joke in the title of the post: iPone vs. iPad. :)
