It was originally going to be named the "Itouch".
Steve jobs needs to get fired from apple for the third time.

lol, Bubbarider66, as the Onion put it, some people actually use their computers for useful things instead of just dicking around.

How would you expect me to program without a keyboard? lol

What planet do you live on? No one has a laptop or uses a keyboard anymore? Get a grip, man.

iPad won`t change anything like the iPod and others. It`s too big to be an mp3 player, it`s not a laptop, and it`s not a phone. At best it`s a take-to-class computer, but at this price it`s way better to just get an actual laptop. It wobbles because the bottom is rounded so you can`t set it down. It`s clipboard sized so you can carry it, but that only has professional use and they won`t pay as much as Apple asks for something that already exists for far cheaper. Virtual keyboards aren`t bad, but the novelty has run out and sometimes I just need to slam down on a key to make myself feel better.

Bubbarider66, not true.

There are cheaper players than the iPod but none of them are better. I still question the move of putting a damn camera on them. Just seemed frivolous.

I formerly used the iPhone 3G and was impressed until I found out the things AT&T wouldn`t tell me.

The iPad looks like a nice piece of hardware but there are other internet tablets that are really just better. Maybe their screens aren`t bigger and maybe they don`t bear the Apple logo, but there are better out there.

There are improvements Apple can make on some of their products but they haven`t listened and their new product proves that.

So you know, i have a IPod touch. i was 50€ and i needed a new mp3 player. I REALLY don`t want that thing. Its basically a big IPod touch. You use your fingers to navigate. Fine, but after 2 pages it screen is full of fingerprints and smudges. Its bigger so better apps... That makes no sens, they might look better but just the size alone doesn`t make it better apps. Its really fast... Somehow i doubt that. Nothing they made so far was as fast as they made you believe it was. (Talking IPod and IPhone here mostly) Just to transport it you l need a case which makes it just the same as a laptop imo. You cant let it rest on your lap while you watch. But i m sure apple will bring out loads of stuff to help with those problems. And you can be sure they are over priced pieces of plastic etc. And the responds to the price is, its design... No its just smooth with nothing on it but a apple logo. Get creative, you have a department for it ffs =s

Having a touch screen is hardly a surprising feature...

Did you really expect a tablet to not have a touch screen?

Remember when everyone said the iPod was unnecessary and unimaginative? Remember when everyone said the iPhone was just another phone? Remember when everyone said the iPad wouldn`t change things? Well, it`s 10 years later and laptops are practically non existent. Everyone has an iPad or it`s clone and no one types on a real keyboard anymore.

"I guess you have a lot of 768 x 1024 multi-touchscreen displays around "

No, but I do have a 1680 x 1050 multi-touchscreen laying around somewhere. And it`s a year and a half old. Apple took a step back on the stairway of technology with this thing.

over glorified iPhone? No. it doesn`t make calls.
It`s an oversize iPod touch. And now seeing how much I do on my touch, this actually would have been a better fit. Just too costly. A modified netbook would do just as well for less.

But the hype for apple stuff does get annoying after a time.

The big problem for apple is going to be convincing people it isn`t an iPhone or a laptop, because it`s neither.

On the one hand, this is trouble, on the other hand, this is genius if they can pull it off.

You`re not replacing your computer, so it doesn`t matter if you already own one. You`re not replacing your phone. Same again.

"Not sure... that sounds awful close to something else not-very-nice too. They should`ve just called it the Apple Tablet ffs; I really don`t understand Steve`s obsession with i-this and i-that."

Maybe they were worried some Macheads wouldn`t feel a need to own a product not iSomething.

Tablet PC`s did fail because they were too cumbersome to use.

Usual complaints:
Screen issues. (Including durability, touchscreen issues, needing to use a stylus, keyboard issues).

Saying as the development of their touchscreen is supposedly the key point of the device, with 2 years of hammering out the bugs in that single piece of technology, they basically have a tablet (which people wanted) without the things people complained about (which they did after they got tablets and found out how they work).

Not only that, this technology comes out AFTER an intermediary device (iPhone) which has gotten consumers used to using it to a degree.

Keep in mind, GAME CDs failed. The Playstation was tagged as "going to be a massive failure", "Sega already tried CDs and it failed", "They`re just bringing us redundant technology", etc.

Doing it right after a competitor`s failure, is not the same as doing it wrong "again".

I do not want one and apple could nto make me want one. Tablet PCs aren`t new and aren`t revolutionary. Why did companies stop making them? Oh, that`s right, becasue they`re cumbersome and ungodly to use. Apple: Making redundant technology, better.

Well, 99% of that list is WAY off I believe.

The thing is a total piece of crap. You could spend $200 on a netbook that can do 100x the things that thing does. Or, you could spend $400 and get a laptop that blows nearly every function of that paper weight out of the water.

I would love to personally smack each person that is dumb enough to buy this thing.

I laughed out loud at the conference...and I like the iPhone...so...not good for Apple.

$500 for the entry model. seems like it`s features are sucky, but they said the same thing about the wii before it came out, and that turned out good. But that was only $250, so you really couldn`t complain too much.

Can anyone think of any point to this apart from as a fashion accessory because it`s part of the `i` brand? Too big for a pocket, too lacking in features to be a laptop...it seems to combine the disadvantages of both while having the advantages of neither.
