errr... it does not support flash.... I still don't understand why no flash.... my HP browser can do flash.
one main reason would be probably be because that Flash sucks up battery life fast on probably anything other than Windows.

This brings nothing new to the table,

It has all the capabilities the Ipod Touch has, (except 3G).

Look fragile to me, esp with that huge glass screen.

I was also hoping that the design would be be simply an enlarged Ipod Touch.


Wonder what they are gonna called the 2nd gen version.

Ipad Maxi?

So who will be getting it ? I will be getting it cause i'm tired of lugging books around and it will be quite useful to me for presentations and the video and music will be a nice extra. My macbook is slowly dying right now so the iPad will help my macbook ease up on all the work its been doing.

How about a list people ?

Ha ha ha its just a gigantic ipod touch.

Ipod touch already so bulky, this is 100 times worse. Sigh, what a disappointment.

i have to agree to u on the glass issue but what u can try to do is take a look at the macbook air or rather the screen of the macbook air & the macbook pro. Air uses a plastic screen and the pro uses a glass and being as thin as they are they manage to hold on quite well. Maybe in a tablet it may be a whole different issue but we will see. I work in an Apple store and for so long from all the handling of customers on the macbooks, no screen actually cracked.

I dont have a reason to convince myself to get this iPad. It's just a scale-up version of iPod Touch to be precise.

For me, tablet/netbook is to serve as a laptop/desktop replacement when travelling but with no video conferencing, multitask, built-in card reader etc then it's a big no no. Why would I need a bigger iPod Touch?

Any tablet/netbook on the market can beat this iPad easily, set apart on the OS.
