    hmm, yup I think I want one!
    Lots of people say it is nothing more than a big iPod touch, but when Steve puts it that way he convinces me.

    I’m not too sure about the iPad. Looks a lot like an enlarged iPod Touch, and it’s a shame that it runs on pretty much the same OS as the iPhone. However, I like the price tag, and some of the features of it (keyboard, multi-touch etc.) seem pretty neat.

    I guess we’ll just have to see how it goes down.

    The news about this gadget broke out a few days ago and ever since I can’t take my eyes off it. When iphone was released, everybody thought it was the mother of all inventions. But they should watch out for this because I see grand things about this technology. Talk about getting connected and staying updated at a whole new level. I want to receive this as a gift on Valentine’s day. I can’t wait.

    I just read a post on Fast Company that says it may have a built in camera as well. That would make for some awesome video conferencing. Then again, it could just be setup for the next version of the iPad too. If it could run Parallels, I’d want one right away!

    The iPad is the future of computing. I have been waiting for this product for years. It just needs a few upgrades like a USB port. I uses PCs all around my house ( music, video, research) but this product might make me switch to Apple when the price (for a fully loaded unit) comes down a little. The worst part is really the name.

    I’m not impressed, Apple has limited a multimedia device that people will want to use for more than Itunes will let them. Now I’m waiting for an Android Tablet 🙂

    Finally, iPad has launched! I wanted to buy one but its kinda expensive for me at that time. I love it for its design, big touch screen. I saw some iPad accessories in the market too. These accessories include keyboards, docks, and headsets. I’m kinda comfortable with touch screen keyboard but i’m thinking to get a Bluetooth headset

    The only problem that I found with it is the ability to play flash!

    Steve Jobs has done a good job with iPad. It’s definitely a revolutionary gadget which will serve as a platform similar future gadgets. iPad’s popularity is bound to increase as more and more apps and accessories become available for this gadget.

    Yes, I agree with you Roger. 2 million people wouldn’t snap up an iPad if its not a must-have gadget.

    There are many who jumped from the bandwagon just to develop apps and make accessories. I think its a good thing.

    The iPad is a ton of fun once you get your hands on it, regardless of the iPod touch comparisons. Has anyone here seen the parallel made between the iPad and Picard’s device on Star Trek?

    Greg. I’m definitely excited for the android Tablet as well. After a few months of using the iPad, I’m fairly happy with it, but I can’t wait to see what the PC companies can do!

    Apple’s magical and revolutionary device can play music, watch movies, and surf the web, all from a device that is meant to be smaller, more focused, and more elegant than a netbook or even a laptop. Watching movies in HD technology is unforgettable and game lovers can enjoy amazing graphics. Battery timing is amazing. Apple’s iPad, is eco-friendly, arsenic-free display glass as well as a mercury-free LCD screen. The body of the iPad is enclosed with recycled aluminum and glass.

    It will be interesting to see what the HP Windows 7 tablet is like when they finally pull their collective fingers out. They’ll have to produce something more than excellent to compete (although it will probably cheaper) with the iPad – which has turned Apple into the 3rd biggest mobile computer seller worldwide.

    Malaysia just released the iPhone 4 recently but not iPad. So sad. I mean they are selling the iPhone 3GS now but how come Apple don’t want to release the iPad prior iPhone 4. Many Apple fans and I love the iPad and hope it is here soon.
