To be honest this looks pretty cool...you can see videos of it on youtube, and probably the best vid is on Apple.com - On the other hand, I'm curious about what makes this so special (and DIFFERENT) from an iphone or Ipod Touch, besides the larger screen. Thoughts on this?

It's freakin cool. Can't wait to try it to give more thoughts about it.

TBH I think it's great, but it would be awesome only when the iPhone 4.0 OS will be released.

Its great, but not what i was hoping to see. Deff won't get one unless the price is dropped a lil more. If Palm made a tablet with their WebOS it would own this easily with its multitasking alone!

Its a glorified iTouch. Not even an iPhone. Can't make calls, can't do video... can't take pictures.

What an absolute waste. But, once again... Jobs proves, he can put on a flashy display and people will fall all over themselves, proclaiming it groundbreaking and trendsetting.

I'm betting on this becoming the next Apple Newton.

- Can't multi-task
- No SD Card slot
- Only 64gigs
- No camera/video conference
- Wi-Fi + 3g = $829 + $30 monthly data plan

Magical? Groundbreaking? Hardly :blink:

I'll wait for the 2nd gen.

Quite useless/pointless since you can't make calls and such. Not sure why some are going nuts over this.

It's a tablet computer.
Why a tablet computer should make calls?

You can install Skype if you wanna make calls!

That's the thing... its NOT a tablet computer.

Its an e-reader/iTouch with a 10" screen.

Once again...

* No multitasking
* No Adobe Flash (yet)
* No camera or iChat capabilities
* No HDMI port
* 4:3 aspect ratio
* Dependence on adapters
* No SD Card slot
* Only 64gigs (if you pay the extra $$$)

It's born as a tablet computer so of course, let the Apple Dumb Buyer buy some of this first generation tablets and then, buy the second generation when it's available, if u wanna buy it.

That's it.

Looks sexy and fun, but really, what is the purpose of this?

It's a giant iPhone / iPod Touch - I don't get it.
