    It's too big to be pocketsized, so it's pointless. Be better off with a netbook, probably cost less too.

    $500-830 apparently

    so $100 more than the 64gb iPod touch to around the price of a mid range mac mini.....

    Re: News - Apple launches the iPad

    I am not sure of the markt for this. I would think something so large would have a proper OS on it rather than a slightly expanded iPhone one. And yes, I know that the iPhone OS is cutdown OSX.
    Not around too often!

    As I though, an oversized iPod/iPhone. Pointless tbh, will end up with a minority market, got a feeling they will aim this at the kindle/digital newspaper market and end up with some tie in to murdocks empire somewhere.

    I keep looking for "page 2" with the pictures... Did no one take a camera with them to this launch?

    Enjoy. Hexus doesn't cover this sort of thing.

    I actually want one, but I can figure out what I would use it for.

    An Apple processor?

    I thought they moved to Intel for a reason... clearly not.

    Obviously they realised they weren't making enough money. Apple NAND chips next.

    Ah I hope they don't start slowly moving away from Intel CPU's as they're developing CPU tech with their recent company buyout of PA Semiconductor.

    I guess that need flash..which this doesn't have.

    Total fail IMO .. though a fair amount will undoubtedly sell

    No full OS X - its iphone OS.
    No camera
    No standalone connectivity - you can't plug your camera into it or memory card slot...

    It's a big ipod Touch - that all.


    I'm now waiting (hoping) they announce a touchscreen macbook pro...

    It's not really an Apple processor.

    £20 says it's an ARM IP core that they've designed into an SoC to suit their own needs.
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();
