New MSD directive released last Friday, no electronic device including smartphone with a monitor or screen larger than 4.3 inch is to be brought into military installations even if they has no external or removable data storage device and USB port .
It seems to me that the iPad is Apple's "netbook"?
Having tried an iPad last Thursday, I want to see how it progresses. I'll probably decide to buy the third generation WiFi-only model. It is very well designed and easy to use but the size is a bit big to just pull out and use in public. If the original rumoured-size of 7 inches happens with equal resolution display (and it's still a rumour), that would be much more portable.
The ipad looks good but has its limitation. The big draw back is the price. It's overprice for such a device.

I love the iPad. Besides being a great sales/marketing tool, I don't see the need to carry around my bulky laptop when I out. In fact I sold it off since my main usage for it is mail, internet, music, videos, preparing invoice and a little bit of games. Most of the stuff I need are on the cloud. I also stopped buying my favourite magazines because the iPad version looks much better and more interactive.
It definitely won't replace the laptop for most people who needs it but since my main workstation (Mac Pro) isn't really mobile, I figured the iPad is a good alternative for other things which doesn't require a full operating system.
The price, well what can I say, let your pockets do the talking. Cheers!
true..with iWork available for the iPad, and VGA output adapter, it can easily replace notebooks for making presentations too.

I'm hoping that HP gives their slate device a WebOS makeover and sends it to market to push Apple to improve. Android tablets should be interesting, though crude for a while.
