It’s a cool toy designed to be a vending machine for the app store. No web camera, no usb, no card reader, only iphone apps or 4-5 that comes with it, 32 gb max. What they sell to you that is it.

update : 64gb max, and no flash support.

Now, if you combine the iPad OS with a MBP where you can flip the screen around and fold it down, to be the iPad, then I would be impressed, but I am not going to spend $600.00 for a device that doesn’t do anything new. It is like a big iPod Touch.

I think the iPad will #Fail.

Looks cool here: http://www.apple.com/ipad/#video

OK I am a bit more impressed after that video.

Matt, you know how to code in cocoa? We need to get that game going now, it would work great on this thing.

Edit: http://www.apple.com/ipad/specs/ << hard specs.

The iPad will definitely be hacked and if you check out the specs page you’ll see two connectors. One for USB and one for an SD card. So if some talented people out there actually manage to hack OS X onto this thing, there’s a chance those connectors could be used for other purposes.

No, you hope it will fail. But we all know it won’t. :)

Without a doubt, I think one of the most interesting tidbits in the entire presentation was the ala-carte 3G deal that AT&T is going to offer for it. I’m not normally in a situation where I’m without WiFi, but for certain times (e.g. vacationing down at the grandparents’ house :) ) I would love to just be able to pay for a month of 3G access, without needing a $60/month contract. I really hope this means AT&T will consider lowering the price of their normal data plans as well.

That being said, I’ll admit that I find the device and the software environment for it very cool, but I still struggle to figure out why I’d need one. Basically, I think the idea they’re conveying here is that the tablet form-factor is the future of computing in general. However, until a tablet device can entirely replace my MacBook Pro (i.e. running full Adobe apps, USB connections, full file structure, etc.) then I just don’t have a place for it in my line of devices.

There is a tablet device that can replace your mbp:
