Gamma & Density Co. Bringing $400 On-Set Color-Correction App to iPhone/iPad

Gamma & Density make high-end tools for DIT (Digital Imaging Technicians) such as their complex 3cP data management system. However, as more and more productions go digital, it seems to me there will be a need for a more budget-friendly DIT solution. Utilizing the iPad seems like a perfect way to allow cinematographers and directors to communicate their aesthetic intentions on-set. However, G&D's $400 pricing seems a bit high for the indie crowd; anyone know of any alternatives? Here's the promo video:

There are a lot of useful tools for indie cinema on the iPhone and iPad, I recently heard about a DSLR slate for the iPad as well.
If Apple's products were more open and less restrictive, free softwares would exist for their devices.
It happens that just yesterday I read about an ultra-low cost micro computer project called Raspberry Pi, of the size of an USB key, capable of playing H264 1080p videos through the HDMI output on a TV, expected at $25.
It has an ARM CPU, you can run Linux systems like Ubuntu on it for example.
Add to that a Lilliput touchscreen and you have the same as an iPad + the app for less that half the price of the G&D Co. software only... And this time it is an open platform !
