Talk amongst yourselves about Apple's new toy
Can they not decide if they want a net book or phone. That thing is ginormous, hold that up to your head and talk on it.
It's kinda intriguing, might be a good addition to those who have desktops
Still I wonder what's the point
So...they came up with a giant iPhone?
Hmm...not sure what to think just yet. But I do know the rabid Apple fans will eat it up.
It looks like an interesting Gadget
It's not compelling enough for me to get this 1st version. I just hope that like the iPhone, people buy tons of it so that Apple will make an even better version next year.
I just wish it was more of a Macbook tablet rather than a huge iPod touch.
I feel the exact opposite. This is a media player/reader, not a laptop replacement. When looked at in that context, things like no physical keyboard or multi-tasking are less important. Loading OSX would just complicate the device and add attack vector. I think for it's intended purpose, it's pretty slick. Not sure I am ready to part with $600 for it, but still.
It is slick, but the geek side of me wants more functionality and the ability to install mac apps. Maybe I'll pick one up after someone figures out how to jailbreak it.
They should have called it something else. Maybe the Apple Tablet, or the iSlate.
I picture Flavor Flave holding it up to the side of his head saying "Yo! This is Flavor Flav who is this?"
As a side note I have toyed around with one at the mac store and it is a surprisingly fun tablet, lot of things it does are very fun and very enjoyable.
And I just set one up for a client and it's wireless reception SUCKS.
All of their other wireless devices at their place (laptop, printers, iPhones, etc,) work perfectly. The iPad does not. If there are any obstacles between it and the source of the wireless signal, reception is spotty at best.
If Apple gets that fixed, then I agree, it is a cool gadget.
Got mine yesterday. It's pretty slick. It's one of those devices that the more you use it, but better it gets.
