u can only try it once they confirm the date for international or someone bring in from oversea (but the SIM card might be an issue for 3G model)

why do u need this when you have the iPhone already? the difference isn't great at all from iPhone, except it only has a larger screen? iPhone is more portable too? I just feel this is gonna be a flop product.. my 2 cents, don't need to flame..

come on. Every first launched item will not be perfect. They will improved it in next update version. I only dissapointed coz no webcam. Actually i am looking for netbook coz i can bring it when i travel coz of its portabality and lightweight. I guess, instead of making netbook for apple, they create this ipad. Its a good product for those who only needs internet, email , watch youtube, music and play some iphone games. I will buy it if price around $600-$700. About the webcam, i hope some 3rd party company will come out this product and plug it using USB. It gonna be handy for me if i travel overseas and can use internet and mail. The battery usage not bad for 10 hrs,

I've just finished watching the keynote and a few worries came to my mind. But nevertheless, i'll still be getting it. I believe that the resale value will be good if I hated it.

Firstly, it's the heat. With bad experiences all over the world with the iPhone's battery emitting heat, i'm beginning to wonder how much of a horror it will be for something the size of an iPad to overheat. Just thinking about it makes me feel that it will leave burn marks on my coffee table.

Secondly, portability. The iPad looks so fragile that I may think twice about using it in public.

Thirdly, it's a gigantic iPhone.

I have a iPhone and a Macbook Pro. I don't think this market is for me.
