Just seen it on Tv what do you think of it
a big ipod/iphone
imagine holding that to your ear
That clive sinclar was way ahead of his time if it was brought out now who knows what would have happened RIP Hoover merthyr tydil
Its a thin tablet pc, you can change the background of the desktop, check your emails and even browse the internet. Maaan, you can even have photos on it AND listen to music, Plus you can watch videos on youtube!!!....

YouTube - Jobs Unveils "iPad"
To be fair, you can rotate it and the screen will adjust to fit which is essential these days
can you fold it in half so I can fit it in my pocket?
bet its a b*tch if you scratch the screen!
Did they release a price for it yet?
Steve Jobs "wayyyyyyyyyyyy better than a netbook, which is actually just a cheap laptop"
think most of us worked that out lol, that's the whole point of buying a netbook.
I think you'd have been better thinking how it might change generic names for tablets rather than coming on here and posting ;-)
If it was April the 1st ok, but that is soooo poor.
Its like one of those giant iphones they have outside mobile phone shops.
Will go and see one of course, but never been so far away in my mind as I am having just watched that video.
Will be nice for your briefcase or coffee table, but thats it.
And like a previous post said, him mentioning, woo you can change backgrounds, was so pathetic it hurt.
Seems like some people are cashing in already. This auction price has doubled since the ipad launch
Just curious how is it way better than a netbook?
I'd rather use a laptop / netbook that i can close and put somwhere and not worry about scratching the screen, not to mention messing up the screen with fingers using the keyboard!!
Isnt there a bit of a fault as well, as it always has to be flat or held to use the keypad on it, ie. with a laptop you can open and put on a table, imagine trying to type on the screen if it wasnt held in place!! not very practical if you have to carry around this to slot it into too - http://cdn.mashable.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/3Dview.jpg
netbook/laptop for me any day, i just dont see the point in this
fingerprints all over the screen, and sun glare, you wont be able to see a thing on a sunny day.
but its apple so people will buy it
What, people who use computers go out in the sun? I thought we were all in dark rooms
Don't like the ipad thing myself, can't see the point in that and ipod or iphone stuff, waste of money.
if im out and need the net i use my blackberry, then put it back in my pocket when im done.
the only thing that this can be used for is a "bigger" fart machine

Some valid points. It just doesn't seem to be all that impressive. My phone is better than this thing.
