Dunno if Apple is serious, but here's the link (Engadget, they're probably serious.) http://www.engadget....creation-event/

iPad is the fabled Apple Tablet. wtf is Steve Jobs thinking with iPad... iTablet would have been much better. when I first saw the title I thought it was a high tech panty liner for periods lmao.

I love the name, haha. I love it, but am disappointed at the lack of Flash plugin. :(

In your lap or with this thing.

And why would you want USB ports?

that's just a silly question.

Is that an SD card slot beside the headphone jack or some other port? Another thing, is it just me or is the bezel really thick. (the black part framing the screen)

bezel is thick but you need to hold the thing somewhere, right? No unwanted input. It was necessary. I'm not sure what that is, but it would be a pleasant surprise to find that the iPad actually had an SD slot... (But no USB question mark)

Not an SD slot ._.

and WiMax adapters for USB is even better of an idea!

Buncha losers at Apple. This is the product of 20 years of tablet R&D?

It's just a glorified picture frame. Look at that bezel. I thought them screens were smart enough to know whether it's your thumb on the side or your index tapping something in the middle of the screen. And lack of expandability. Just because Apple doesn't want to make it convenient to use SD cards huh?

No excuse for no multitasking. If a jailbroken iPhone can do it, this thing is certainly capable.

I see how it can be useful to some people but it's like a baby's first computer. A lot of things are too simplified, and it's all locked up so you can't break it. I don't see any serious computer user enjoy using this thing on a regular basis.

@ktk doesn't mean the bezel should be huge. I think it would have been better if it were proportional to the size of the tablet. Honestly its not going to make a HUGE difference if half your finger is on the screen when you pick it up. I think most people are going to hold it like a Gameboy anyways.

I think the iPad is marketed towards people who aren't very tech savvy (then again how many Mac users are really that into computers). I remember reading an iPad prediction somewhere that said that the iPad would run the iPhone OS or something similar because it was really easy to learn and incredibly easy to use everyday.

imo, Apple overhyped this WAY too much. No multitask, no SD, no brand spanking new innovations. Its just an iPod touch on steroids wearing a fat bezel. maybe Apple will get it right when they decide to release a new model. They should change the name too, God. I feel like such a moron saying iPad.

If my brother was an expert, this is a competition killer. But being realistic, this is just a stepped on version of a tablet PC. sry, I'd really rather have a tablet PC then this. It can do more.

This thing.. looks horrible. What's the point in only being able to run one thing at once, for starters? ._.

And lol @ name. WAY TO GO.

The iPad looks like a freaking joke. Much of what's been said about its lack of features have already been said, so I would rather mention about its design.
I could care less if it can view movies: I want to see them on a big screen, not on a freaking thing you have to hold or put on your lap/table/whatever. The screen is too small: it's like you have to squint your eyes or hold it up your nose to see small font or small images.
It sounds so gimmicky, and it doesn't even have the usual characteristics of what made a personal computer a brilliant invention in the first place. You can multi-task. You have a big screen (old monitors may take up a lot of space, but at least you can see stuff). You can use a laptop comfortably without having to deal so much with holding it with your hands or having to keep your neck down on your lap to see anything.

According to my experience if you are a Face-Book user, you would probably not like to access your account from the iPad. This is because the iPhone applications are blown upto ‘pixel double’, and the text-oriented Face-Book looks tepid in the full screen mode, However, this feature is quite good when it comes to games. Even as the presentation was going on, the people present were too occupied in their gadgets to spare a glance at the executives on the podium.

I like to use ipad which is best and beautiful creation of an apple company. it has excellent features like messenger service, video, movie and music downloading, photo capture and many other facility. moreover it contains large numbers of memory storage. its provide extra ordinary customer services to the users.
