iPad...WTF (iPad Discussion Thread)

Seriously Apple? You're calling your new tablet the iPad.

And I'm an Apple fan too!

Re: iPad...WTF

What's even more disappointing, is that it's the main headline on CNN currently.

A revolution gets its name by always coming back around in your face.

Thankfully MSNBC is more interested in the Geitner hearing.

Re: iPad...WTF

I lol'd when I saw that too. My reaction is - wow, so you made a laptop without a keyboard. Impressive.

Keep in mind it looks about as thin as an iPod Touch and I would guess at this point it's at least as powerful as one of their regular laptops, so it's still pretty impressive.

Re: iPad...WTF

okay, 0.5" thick, maybe a little thicker than the iPod.

Re: iPad...WTF

Dell has a laptop with a real freaking keyboard that is 0.4 inches thick. I don't see how the form factor makes it desirable.

I'm sure the user interface is impressive but I'm not sure how well the virtual keyboard will be.

This is sure to be a low volume product, those looking for the "cool" factor. Otherwise, just get a laptop.
