    I will wait for the next revision. It needs a camera for me to be interested in it.

    Well, eventually leaves things wide open. Like James Bond said, "never say never." :)

    Yeah eventually, if they stick Mac OS X lite on it and change the name to something less menstrual

    As others have noted, do you giggle like a 10 year old every time you hear a name with the word pad in it?

    touchpad? launchpad? how about thinkpad? That is a computing name that has been around forever, and nobody ever said, wow that is a sucky name.

    Seriously. A few people made a weird connection when the name came out, and most normal people got over it in an hour, and some of you can't let it go.


    Given the possible choices of names, the iPad makes the absolute most sense to fit in with Apple's lineup. It was the most obvious choice, for those who are out of middle school.

    I love how the fanboys are so mature they can rise above the name, but virtually every spreadsheet and high-brow read has cottoned on to the unfortunate choice of name.

    The more I think about it, the camera is a non-issue for me. Don't really care. I realize important to some people, but I only vid with one friend, occasionally. And I can still do that on my MBP 13".
