    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.

    Nope, seems about right given that it's a super-sized iPod touch, eBook reader and a bit more from Apple.

    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.

    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.

    iFad...LOL
