This is mostly a disection of some thoughts in my head. feel free to join in the conversation If you think about it, majority of what we are missing from the iPad is software. Sure no camera, but there's not a whole lot else we were craving. Maybe some proximity sensors and additional things like that (which would be difficult to implement) More "magical" software is really what we want. And I agree the software is really quite lacking.... it's nearly identical to the iphone OS, but capable of running ibooks and iwork... Heck even the LOCK SCREEN is the same... But when you think about it, it makes sense... i mean the iPad is still running on 3.x iPhone software.... Maybe Apples plan is to deliver all our dreams on 4.0! But see I always imagined that the iPad would come out of the gate (around march or april) running on it's own version of 4.0 (which would be discussed at least minimally on the 27th), and then Apple would still take it's time perfecting the iphone version of 4.0, which could then be released in the May-June timeframe. But now here we are... no 4.0 software, and the iPad is to be released end of March and April... right around the time 4.0 will begin to be released on Beta.... At first I was hopeful that maybe they will release the ipad on 4.0 just for funsies.. but there would be no reason they would use 3.2 at the media event: bad marketing. But perhaps they will announce 4.0 around that time to build the anticipation and bring a greater desire for the ipad? Although does anyone else thing it's a little weird that the iPad will probably get a pretty major software update about 2 months after it is released?? Especially because I feel that majority of 4.0 will be necessary additions for the iPad (like multitasking). But I just hope that apple lets all the iphone users join in on all the fun in store for the ipad Thank you for joining me on this journey. Anybody agree with any of this incoherent babble?
