My first opinion - the name has got to go! Seriously, a woman was not involved in picking that name or they would have laughed it away right then and there.

I'd love to see the commercial of the ipad commercials when it hits our tv screens. I envision (think baywatch slow motion scene) of a woman running across the beach taking long strides clutching her ipad.

I hear it surfs the web and stops the bleeding, how much better can it get?

Seriously though I think it's total junk, and could very well be the flop Apple's been seeking for the past 10 or so years, hopefully they don't have much wrapped up in this because short of the "apple fan boys" I don't see this overtaking the netbook market like it aims to.

It's like a giant iPhone without a camera, and voice capabilities, it can't multi-task, it still only has 4 icon rows despite the larger screen, uses an archaic little used sim card, the outter rim (bezel?) is HUGE, and rather cumbersome, no flash support still, and it still relys on the closed development app system of the App Store. To top that off I hear you have to have an adapter just for USB or anything else.

Microsofts touch screen tablet will bury this. Why? Because you can run your current software you have on your pc and take your work with you.

And do everything the iPad does.

I don't know any of the details but it just looks like a huge iphone to me and how are you supposed to really hold it while doing stuff?

I think its completely pointless...

I see no actual use for the iPad (And their naming sense for it is horrible, honestly). If I wanted something that big and bulky, I'd buy one of the higher end netbooks, have a bit more weight, and much more capabilities.

I think it will be a success but not close to the iPod or iPhone -- but still, it will sell at a brisk pace initially. If a ton of "killer" apps come out for it, I see the pace picking up.

Apple does these minor upgrades. Wait, the iPad will get better or buy a Tablet PC.

I don't think it will be able to compete with a real keyboard on a production level. It's fine for a toy, pointing and dragging with your fingers, etc. But when it comes to actually creating documents, formatting and real production level work you will need a mouse and a real keyboard.
