    Does anybody know what the button next to the Slide to Unlock does? Its an up arrow it looks like, which could bring up the keyboard.

    I believe it's for the picture frame/slideshow ability.

    Ok, that would make sense, but I didn't hear them mention it at all.

    Yeah, and that slide to unlock looks so small compared to the size of the screen

    Here's the video of that button working: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWqD2bKff_k&feature=player_embedded

    They didn't mention a lot of things...

    -GPS on the 3G model
    -VGA out (but it was off hand mentioned by Phil)
    -Bluetooth keyboard support
    -VoiceOver/Zoom (Accessibility) [I want my email read to me]

    Also, where are the Stocks, Weather, Voice Memos and the frickin' Calculator apps?

    Dunno. Pretty sure similar apps will be for free in the App Store though.

    The Apple pages say the iPad will VGA out... which I can find *very* useful. If that's so, may change my mind on whether or not to buy it.

    I watched that keynote twice but I still can't recall him saying that. Could you please give me the time he announced that? I'll be happy to say I was wrong about that part.

    Think about having to slide your finger ALLLLL the way across that big screen, and how about those times when you don't complete the slide and you have to do over, lol. That would get a bit annoying.
