    A 10inch slate with WebOS makes sense after PALM supports Flash.

    how many Mp3 players did you see in 2000?

    How many capacitive touchscreen only smartphones did you see in 2006?

    Only time will tell...

    Look I am not a apple hater or lover, to me the issue is it was so over hawked, that, I expected the ipad to run for prez! That is part apples fault for not helping to tone down the faux adulation. It is a niche product, period.

    To me it is a baby boomers delite, (which I am a boomer) and itouch with a bigger screen for all of us who need reading glasses, LOL. (not me I had lasix surgery). Basically I would call it an Itouch on steroids.

    Since I am disabled all of my reading audio thru a FREE program from the Library of Congress' National Library Service and I have no need for an overgrown Kindle.

    APPLE will sell a million of these before upgrading it with real OSX. But with current specs ( no flash, can't watch CNN video whats up with that) the browsing experience is not so magical.
    I guess we'll have to see. I use my everything-Apple-loving sister as a gauge on these things, and she says she doesn't see the point of it and has predicted it will be the "biggest flop since the Newton". Her words, not mine.

    The PC world is totally different. Even those that consumers buy assembled really are just assembled "build a computer". Name brand computers (at the consumer level) have one set of chips on one production run, and the new lowest bidder on the next production run. The nature of the industry means there is less control, and thus less reliability.
    I guess you have not read much about all the new 27 inch iMAC's that have been opened from their brand new box only to be DOA or the screens were cracked.

    Apple has a spotty record as far as quality goes these days.

    I own two IMAC's and a MacBook Pro lap top, I like the OSX operating system, but I will in no way ever bow at the alter of Steve Jobs.

    I love my new Palm Pre, my wife loves her new Palm Pixi, got the buy one get one deal from Verizon.

    In my opinion Steve Jobs laid a big egg on stage with iPad, and Apple should have had Colonel Sanders on stage previewing that thing.

    By the way, it looks like Palm could have benefited from some lessons in how to implement backwards compatibility. The iPad runs iPhone OS apps right out of the box. No need to wait for the "Classic" apps you have learned to love.
    But will it run Macintosh software?

    Why would I want to run apps that were not intended to run on a touch device? Ever use a Windows tablet? If you did, you would know what I mean.

    remember when the might OSX came out? Did it natively run OS9 applications? Or did you need an emulator. Same deal as WebOS and PalmOS, you need the emulator.

    Well, I guess we shall see who is right. Steve Jobs, and the Apple board......or your sister.

    I was not so sure of the device till I used it yesterday also. I'm still not 100 percent sure I need one, but it would be real nice to have.

    On a side note, I have no desire to ever go to another Apple Event again. There were so many people there, I thought I was going to get crushed.

    cute... But amatuerish... I think that dehydration is really affecting your ability to think. I suggest you drink more of that apple kool-aid

    I couldn't care less who is right or wrong, my point was that if Steve Jobs can't convince my sister, of all people, to buy one, this might not be the revolution he says it is. After many, many years of blind loyalty she's starting to see the man behind the curtain.

    If you gave me one, I wouldn't throw it out, but I'm sure not going to pay five hundred clams for it.

    Just perhaps you might want to try one first before you pass judgment. Who knows, maybe even your sister might change her mind after actually touching it.

    That's like saying the iPhone has no backwards compatibility with the Newton. PalmOS came out only a few years after the Newton. The only difference is PalmOS was successful for a very long time.

    By the way, I think it was a brilliant move of Palm to let third party developers deal with PalmOS compatibility. Because that frees Palm to concentrate on making WebOS a superior OS. I want Palm to do nothing else but improve the new WebOS and not worry about an old dinosaur that will be less relevant as new apps come out for WebOS.

    I don't see how touching it is going to change a thing. I've read the reviews, watched the videos, and seen the specs. If I was looking for a toy, touching it might make a difference, but I'm not.

    Look, I've owned a couple of Apple computers, and both were disappointments. But in my household there are currently eight iPods (and only four people) because they're really nice products that are good at what they do.

    So if this had been the product it was hyped to be, or maybe more acurately, the product I was expecting it to be, I probably would've bought one. But it's not, so I'm not. It's filling a gap that ain't open, at least for me.

    I know people will buy it and love it, I just have no use for it. That should be ok.

    why in hell did they pick at&t when there have been so many problems with them in the first place?? Although many of the problems that AT & T is blamed for is also Apples fault. It also it not the big deal the press carried on about. you can do everything the ipad, (god I hate that name), on an itouch or Iphone.

    This could have been a earth moving product but it is not. For all of Steve Jobs proclamations from the mount, I am very underwhelmed. No removable battery after he has been reamed out for years over this, what is he nuts?

    How so, and what do you mean by professional? In my mind professional tends to mean busy, which means little time to screw around. But this still makes me ask the question, what does the iPad help me get done? It won't replace my smartphone and it won't replace my laptop.

    I am still sticking to my guns that it is an extremely expensive coffee table book.

    apparently he's nuts and desires a pad. I guess that's why they have unsure on sat's when they ask sexual orientation...

    oh boy... So we have two successful products... Big deal. I don't think anybodys gunna want to carry a 10 inch mp3 player, internet device, or any of the fart apps you can download on there. If I want internet with a touchscreen, I have my palm which was first in the game with touchscreen internet. Now we rave apple doing it. Reminds me of the racial division we have here of a black guy and white guy doing the same thing, the white guy gets more success. If I want an mp3 player I have an ipod or my phone. If I want to watch movies?netflix and portable dvd player for like 70 bucks. And still spent less and have more capabilities then an ipad
