Default Merged: The iPad

Can't believe I had the first thread about Apple's latest device. I thought it was a dumb move by Apple but, I want to know your reaction about it. I was hoping for a Verizon iPhone annoucement. :'(

Its not for everyone thats for sure. As much as I love new technology I never see my self getting one, just because I don't have the use for it.

Here is the price breakdown.

http://www.apple.com/ipad/pricing/



On the same note tho, I am very interested to see the Iphone 4G. Rumors have it it might have the cam to cam function. Sweet!!!

They shouldve either put a swivel touchscreen on the white macbook or developed a 10 inch netbook with a swivel touchscreen. That pad design is awful for full time use, and I don't want apple's crippled OS if i'm gonna buy something like that.

Still cool.

I know it killed my day when the iPhone 4G wasn't shown. The iPad wouldn't have any use for me either. I have a new laptop, a phone, and a iPod Touch. I just think this device will become an Apple Newton since they didn't add an independent OS.

I think its not gonna be iphone 4g guys

AT&T has yet to create a 4g network, and if apple does like before, theyre gonna wait until the latest possible time to adopt the new technology.
