    I’m sure I’m not the only one out there wondering if the new keyboard/dock will be backward-compatible with the iPod Touch and the iPhone…

  2. Phil Schinbein says:

    here’s another random question that my mother thought that seemed quite brilliant….

    Will the Apple iBooks bookstore charge for public domain books?

    I do not know what Apple is thinking but it seems they decided to take a fancy iPod Touch device, enlarge it and call it iPad. On the face of it, I think the only difference is that for iPad you need a bag and for iPod Touch your pocket will do.

      While I am very much looking forward to playing with the iPad, I really, really like your comment! (still chuckling . . .) :-)

  4. Chris Peterson says:

    With outstanding design and advanced technology. One major plus point is getting in reasonable price.

  5. Apple iPad says:

    Also, note that all iPhone apps will work on the iPad. The only downside of this is that the images won’t scale (so you are left with an iphone size image in the middle of your large iPad…)

  6. Fleeting says:

    Steve Job’s new iTablet will soon evolve after the pumped up launch during it’s unveiling. The touch screen and Mac’s potential to fix hardware will definitly to make the iTablet a monster in the time ahead.

  7. Fergal says:

    Apple’s stellar computer will soon grow after this initial pumped up period during it’s launch. The lack of keyboard and Job’s potential to fix defections will definitly to make the product a monster in the futuire.

    Ok. Here is one thing people dont think about. The best use for the Ipad will be the size and the ease of internet use. Im writing this on my 17″ macbook pro. It can be very uncomfortable to work on this in my lap. Of course there are other tablets out there,and a couple that i know of being worked on now,but apple is going at a different approach. I believe once people get to see and use this in person it will be a hit. The iphone technology is still today untouched. It is easy,friendly and fun. The Ipad will be the same way. Apple is the only company that is releasing gadgets that are futuristic. People need to step back and look at what it can do vs what it cant do. I know for a fact that the ipad will benefit me at home and work. And the price, very reasonable. Bank on this. The Ipad will be a winner. It may not be for everyone,but it will change computers in a huge way. Apple keep up the good work

    I have been looking at Kindle because I want a reader. IPad is obviously far superior. Problem is, I live in an area where AT&T has little to no service. Does this leave iPad dead in the water or can it still function as a reader?

    • Paul H says:

      Pat,

      you wont need to have at&t to make the Ipad work, it will be very similar to the ipod touch. It will work on any wireless network and if you have a 3g enabled ipad and a at&t service contract you can surf the web anywhere on the 3g network.

      As long as you have a wifi network in your home, you are golden!

  10. Alex C. says:

    Well I heard that you have to pay a monthly subscription if you wanted the 3G with it. That makes all this slightly less cool.
