Looks like a pretty clever device, packed with features. Want one? Very Happy

BTW starting price for a 16GB model is $499. Also available in 32 and 64 GB versions.

@The Chief,
my work laptop is a toughbook with a touch screen. basically, the ipad is a large itouch, or the screen of my laptop. interesting, but not worth it. itll be $300 in 6 months.

@saintlewi,
I look forward to the progression of these devices, but I'll wait until the Android versions will become available. Once iTunes is mentioned, I have to hold back from vomiting.

@The Chief,
I'm not clear what the iPad (awful name) is supposed to be. I have owned iMacs since they came out in the late 90's. I just bought a 27" one. I wanted an iPhone, but after owning my Droid for two months or so, I don't think I'm missing anything not having an iPhone. I like Apple products, but this one? It's like an iPod touch that has a gland problem. Is there a market for something like this? It's not a phone. It's not a computer. I have no interest in it. Of course, I said the same thing when the iPod came out in 2001. So what do I know? Anyone on the forum wanting one?

@linmk2,
It would be a nice, lightweight alternative to a laptop or netbook, and I'm sure prices will drop as more models come out with MORE features. But I'm pretty happy with the Droid's ability to seamlessly go from Wi-Fi to 3G and back... something the iPad can't do... yet.

@YankeeDudeL,
And here we go, Android's version, the Archos 7. Doesn't quite spec out to the iPad, but not too shabby.

@The Chief,
I hate apple and am glad they came out with this BS. They made a cool phone a few years back and now everything jobs whips his hind parts with is supposed to be golden. When is the iphone wave gonna run out for apple? When will the brainwashed stop locking into this closed system. Guess for apple sticking a bitten apple and a 500+ price tag on something is reveloutionizing it.

@cmacv,
And here's another option coming out in the 2nd half of 2010:

http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20100128PD214.html

What will ultimately prove to be the iPad's downfall is the lack of Flash, something we know is coming to Android (most especially, our beloved Droids).
