As it seems popular at the moment i thought i would throw in my opinion about the ipad, and who knows, might change some opinions about it. People are saying that it is a big ipod touch, well yes it is but i think that might be the idea. Flip things round for awhile, what if the ipad had been out for a few years and jobs just introed the touch now. People would be furious, "how will i surf the net on that tiny screen!" "its so much slower than an ipad!" "no 3g option WTF?!?!" no one would want it. people would be love using that big touch screen, fast processor and big screen apps and hate the every thing about the ipod touch. Back to reality, i think people are going to see how frustrating surfing on a 3.5 inch screen is and how the speed of apples chip makes a big difference. Thats why i am willing to let the ipad have a chance lets be honest, surfing the net on an ipod touch is a less than enriching experience, i think the ipad, simply because of the bigger screen will give a much better browsing experience (staying well away from the flash argument! ((flash is pants anyway!!!)) and of course you get extras like newly specially made full screen ipad apps, books store, iwork etc. Dont get me wrong, IF i get one of these i will have a dam good look at it 1st and give it my own inspection before going to buy it, it will have to pass my rigorous testing program. Well there is my opinion, i'm sorry, i just wanted to fit in and be cool. as they say, my 2 cents.
