What the fuck? A big iPhone?
Flawed right from the get go.
Terrible name, but I guess the tablet rumors turned out to be true.
I laughed when I heard ipad. itablet sounds a lot better in my opinion. I think I'd rather have the lenovo tablet when it comes out in June! It doesn't even have support for FLASH! HAHAHAHA Apple sucks
Apple's in the feminine hygiene business?
Oh yeah, here come the jokes! Terrible, terrible name...
Ugh, the name, uuuuuuuuuuugh.
I'm just hoping it sucks less over time, like the Wii.
Lol, it would be a lot better if it was running full fledge os x instead of the garbage iphone/ipod OS. Im not buying one
Supposedly it's somewhere in between the two OSes. But really, what are you going to do with a full fledged OS X on a 9.7" touch-input only device?
E: Also, the dozen apps in the App store that allow you to track menstrual cycles all seem a lot more relevant.
Like I need that menstruel cycle crap, only if i had a gf i guess i was living with on a regular basis would i need that
So lurker, eating your hat now?

Seems too pricy...
Of course, it's an apple product, what do you expect?
Nope, seems about right given that it's a super-sized iPod touch, eBook reader and a bit more from Apple.
Been watching the live blog on Engadget...sillly name but it looks really good. Will I buy it? No, I'd rather have an iPhone, honestly.
What are the dimensions
HP or Lenovo tablet > iFad iPad
$130 for a 3G radio? ROFL
I dunno, I think the pricing is actually pretty decent. I mean, it's basically a lidless, touch screen netbook. I'm interested...
As far as the OS, a full on desktop OS just doesn't work with a touchscreen tablet.. That is why we have seen many tablets come over the years, yet never become a mainstream device.
If you want a full on OS then most people would just go for the normal laptop. Also most non-custom made apps would be too cumbersome to use with just a finger.
But in saying all that, not sure if I want one or not. I certainly love my iPod touch.. So yeah maybe..

Much better IMHO, Jump to 2:07
Considering that's $1k, the ipad isn't that bad of a price, especially considering you have the option for unlimited 3g wireless for $30 a month and can cancel/renable whenever you want. It should still have flash support though
Bezel too thick but I can understand for holding reasons
expensive even for the stripped 16gb
iPhone os. Don't get me wrong I love the iPhone os but I was expecting a bit more eye candy than spaced out ihone icons.
The name is awful.
I might consider the stripped 16gb. At home, free wifi. When I'm out and about, tether with android or wm phone.
My question is... What's gonna happen when it gets dropped?
And who's gonna be the first?
If it didn't run a neutered OS I might consider it. Couple of problems I see:
1. iPhone OS. No thanks. And this comes from an iPhone user
2. 1GHz Apple A4 - unproven at best
3. $130 for 3G??? Really?
What happens when you drop your laptop? You break it and have to pay for it.
Not that I think this is a brilliant product or anything, but I really want to know what you all think you'd be able to do on an "real OS" on propriety hardware with a touchscreen.
10 hour battery life sounds like BS to me...
I wonder if the extra large iphone comes with extra large head phones? LOL
Seriously, I know people are going to buy this thing, but WHY...it's an overpriced piece of equipment that will be secured so tightly, you can't do anything meaningful on it.
