    So this is way better than anything else because, it's thinner? It looks the same? It has a microfiber cover? Nothing new or innovative, just the same like Apple usually does. Thinner, good job, but I don't really care about the thickness now that everything is pretty thin anyways. Dual core, sure everyone is getting that now. All the same stuff as everyone else now.

    They just killed most of the competition before they made out the gate.

    At this point I think the touchpad needs to be $299 or its dead in the water. the ipad 1 will probably be that low tomorrow.

    Well that and actually shipping like now. That beats any amount of innovation.

    The thing is mad thin. The cover thing is VERY neat. Front and back cameras is nice. Price is great. Launching March 11th is EXCELLENT.

    If iOS 4.3 gives some updates to multi-tasking and notifications its going to be a hard choice to not switch.

    I am seriously thinking about getting one for my wifes B-day, was holding out till HP TouchPad but this is just crazy. Apple just knocked out all competitors with price and specs. The longer HP sits quietly the worse they are of. I am on the fence right now.

    Dude, they were smoking everyone in speed and responsiveness with a single-core processor. This just means their UI and app launching response will remain above competitors.

    The covers and two base color choices make it more fashionable to mainstream consumers. Seems minor. It's not. People shop visually.

    The thinness will pay off when looking at them side-by-side with a competing tablet in any best Buy or Fry's. It's why people will pay hundreds more for the new MacBook air when thicker PC notebooks with equivalent or better guts are so much less. Again, killer aesthetics.

    Most importantly, it's available everywhere inexpensively now (new version 9 days from now) with polished software and 65,000 apps.

    Yes, shipping next week is fantastic, HP got that wrong for sure. But they also are new to Palm and webOS so they haven't settled their cycles yet while Apple has had years and years to create and make a cycle that works. HP will also have the same thing.

    And how is this way better than any other tablets revealed to day? Did you just forget the Xoom or Playbook or TouchPad that have the same hardware practically?

    another gamechanger...and hp is three months too late...again

    Agreed. Apple just blew the TouchPad out of the water. It's cheaper than any other tablet. It's thinner (by a LOT), lighter (again by a lot), faster (dual processor) - and it'll have 3 months of sucking up tablet customers before the TouchPad breaks.

    any idea in how much is the ipad 1 now?
  17. #237  
    Everything I've seen so far is about the new cover.. I guess that's the selling point for a lot of people who are looking for a tablet.

    Same BS now just with different name " HP "
    Always late to the party. I guess HP will come out and say that they lowered there numbers for this year.

    Maybe Apotheker was talking about Apple when he said "ship within weeks of annoucement"?
