I guess everyone noticed the new Apple tablet called iPad.

the downsides:
- No USB
- No HDMI out
- No 16:9 (movies will have black banners)
- No camera
- only applications from the app store
- it's too big to carry around
- no real keyboard (unless you get it extra)
- no multitasking
- no Flash
- ...

the upsides:
- the price is ok
- long battery life
- it's thin and light
- it's an iPod with a big screen
- Wifi & 3G
- reading e-books and other content will be cool
- Apple will work hard to have good software for it
-...

You like it?

Price is ok?! 500$ for non-3g 16 gb oversized iPod device? No way.

This is a total Apple failure. Oh yes, I know fanboys will buy it. They would even buy abacus made by Apple.

Do I like it? Yep. Would I use my hard earned cash to buy one? No. I just wouldn't have enough use for it. It does sound very nice, although there's probably only a small market for this type of product so I wouldn't expect huge sales for a long time. I do laugh at the way some people are so anti-Apple that they think they know all about the latest products before they've even been released.

I too, at people believing the ads and hype before the product has been released.

Agreed. The point being that you can't really say whether something is good or not until you actually use it. Sure, anyone can have an opinion but it's not worth much if it's just based on... well, opinion.

It's more like an oversized iPod touch because you can't even make phonecalls with it. It might be a good machine in handling and software, but except for ebook reading I don't see any use for it in my everyday life.
I have an iPod touch and that is good enough to watch videos/play music/play some games/read Gmail/watch this site/etc, I don't need a huge screen to do all that.
And the one thing that really bothers me is Flash support or better the lack thereof. What a bummer.

I thought this was a failure too, but then I read an article that explained who this is intended for. It's for people that think normal computers are too hard to use and want something that is simple and surfs the web. It's not for us, it's for your aunty Gertha.
