Pointless bashing is not needed here.
The latest ONT published spec: 3000 pores for Minion II, 100K readlength, cost $20 for the first hour of data (5G). The Promethion has about 140K pores (many many Minions bound together). This is close to RS, which has 150K active dots. The accuracy is rumored to be above 90%.
If ONT delivers, it is a PacBio killer. Ilumina is less affected due to its focus on high precision, short reads and ultra high throughput.
