The iPad has a lot of potential, especially for deployment in certain areas if people develop apps for it properly.

I must note the Omni Group has declared their intention to develop for the iPad, even at the expense of slower development times for their desktop applications... That would make the iPad a serious corporate contender if OmniGraffle, OmniPlan and other apps are available at the typically low App Store prices.

Those who diss the iPad too early obviously don't see the potential and are just fixated on it being an overglorified eBook reader. Even Amazon.com is threatened enough to pull a publisher's books off their print AND digital stores for asking for better pricing terms.

However, all that said, I probably still won't buy one unless I have a windfall...
