    While I agree with you. I think Apple screwed up here. This is the first revision, but there are some glaring omissions that just seem like they don't care what people want. Granted in a revision or two, we will get some of those features.

    Apple released this, and when other companies try to match it, Apple will release rev. 2. But it will only add what reasonably should have been in this revisions.

    The only advantage this has over an iPhone is a larger screen--that is it.

    Well the 1st gen iPhone was weak, but still had many lovers. So will this.

    I disagree the only advantage the iPad has over iPhone is a large screen. Seems to me there was a bunch of features I cant find on my iPhone at the moment. Just sayin'...

    This is an extremely shortsighted view. Apple has already demonstrated that much more substantial applications can run on the iPad than the phone. As time goes on and developers/other content providers catch up, I think people will realize that this device is much more than a giant iPod Touch.

    The links posted by the OP are perfect examples of how shortsighted most Macrumors users are (at least the most vocal ones).

    iMac - no floppy drive, USB - ditched legacy apps
    MacBook Air - expensive, no optical drive
    iPod - expensive, terrible battery life, proprietary iTunes
    iPhone - $599, no MMS, EDGE, not so good phone, no apps, AT&T, closed system
    iPad - no phone, no camera, no video chat, etc.

    These are the products that made Apple a $50 billion company. They all have flaws which shocked the pundits, but people overcame or ignored.

    iPad will sell well - it is cheaper than the iPhone when it was released (think Apple learned a lesson?). It fits in the product line without cannibalizing anything (except maybe some MacBook sales, but it isn't a direct replacement). It it The Next Big Thing for Apple. Some of the missing features are clearly setting the stage for the iPad II. Some are probably limited because of technology or cost. They're getting good hype from this thing and, like the iPhone, the Ipad II will be a monster. Plus, the iPhone, iPod Touch, and App Store have set people up to buy and use this thing.

    It's not a hobby...
