Another priced piece of hardware from apple. I will personally love them much more when they will have more open source like no need to use Itunes to do anything.

a netbook has lots of practical functionality - it may not do it at top speed (especially with windows) but definitely more then this tablet most likely!

iPad can do... what a $200 iPod Touch can do.

Netbook can do what a $1000 laptop can do, just not as well.

i'm pretty sure apple is trying to take over the ebook industry also =P... i mean if i were to choose between the kindle and the ipad, i would go for the ipad... granted it is more expensive, but you get wifi, and you get to dl books in colour! LOL... so isn't that better? and a whooleee bunch of other things...

i'm not an apple fanboy fyi, i just think apple is very creative with their limited number of products that work.

Looks kinda crazy. Just a giant sized iPhone. Nothing to great IMO. The battery life looks great, but I was hoping for a more all around tablet PC. Oh well there's always a future press-conference for that.

One MAJOR difference here.
ebooker readers like the Kindle have specialized screen specifically adapted for reading digital print that won't irritate the eyes.

Having bought e-books a few times, I find it VERY difficult to read long bits of text on regular computer screen. I find it to be distracting and very straining.


Apple is using an IPS LCD which I have and find to be MUCH easier than the typical TN, but having test a few e-book readers with their specialized screen, nothing can really come close imo.
