    in the next 60 days, there are going to be too many of them to count. Developers would have started working on them already. It will only take a few weeks for an app to be completely made.

    Really got no use for it. This product doesn't falls anywhere, it is not here nor there, not powerful enough to do office work and is too big to carry around just for multimedia. Maybe if you are a student, this is a great product for you.

    the gadget is useless on its own
    it really depends on the apps

    just like the iPhone, without the apps, it is just another oversized phone

    basically an upsized iPhone... but it works for me. would be nicer if the screen is as large as the body. don't quite like the thick borders. anyway, will wait and see if price is right. at US$499 onwards... looks promising.

    From the presentation video, looks like the Safari browser still lack support for Flash content.

    And there's no question this thing will sell like hotcakes; legions of rabid Apple fans would swarm into Apple stores and buy them by the truckload even if it was perpetually on fire, reeked of sulphur and brimstone, and indwelt by a demon.


    We all know that. I'm just not convinced that it is superior to a laptop. A netbook? Sure, I'll buy that. A Kindle? Maybe. The breaking point, I guess, is whether or not the capabilities of the iPad justify the price, seeing as how a netbook that is perfectly suitable for its purpose can be bought for as little as $250 and a Kindle only costs $259. I don't intend on buying an iPad; I have a laptop that works great and does everything an iPad can do and more, and I don't mind the extra 3 pounds and three inches to carry around. That's why I have a travel bag.

    - internet is useless with websites too
    - computer is useless if there is no programs

    Flash isn't really critical. Good to have, but not critical, from a technology standpoint.

    1ghz should be powerful enough to handle office work. There are older computers out there doing office work.

    The question is what type of office work and the software required.

    Personally I won't buy it because it doesn't help me save more time or money. I judge technology only by those two criteria.

    The speed is fast and the form factor is comfortable to hold.

    Saw this.... http://i.gizmodo.com/5457757/apple-ipad-first-hands-on

    There is office applications such as iWork for iPad available.

    how do you know it's not powerful enough? it's not even available to try.
    don't tell me you went to the conference.

    What do you need for office work? It already has office applications available. No one needs a 2 GHz dual core processor to write documents or create slideshows.

    All browsers are going away from Flash content, even on the desktop since HTML 5 has provisions for audio and video. There are even open source audio and video codecs, so who needs Flash really?

    I am not surprised with the results of this poll thus far, just look at how Apple share price slided sharply right after iPad is announced and it closed at $199.29 yesterday a -4.13% drop I own many Apple products, Imac, Mac-mini, a couple of Macbook Pro and a few ipods but this is the first time that Apple has launched something that did not arouse my interest, seriously. Who are the people who will buy this? Maybe students and of course those zealous Apple fanboys
