it seems like this keep coming up with ipad haters. I would like to know what makes that a bad thing if it is just a big ipod touch? But I just don't get it. you would never compare the ibook to the top end macbook pro. so why are you comparing the ipad with the ipod touch? Now yes it does look like the the ipod touch/iphone but that is nothing but product branding. Never has something been so different. The ipad is the first time we will see multi touch on a large screen this is something that has not been done before. The things you can do on the iphone are amazing. Just think about the ipad 9.7 inch screen. To compare it to the ipad touch is so disreapctful. the fact that it has large multi touch display makes it better then anything out now. And people are focusing on flash and multi tasking and not having a sd card. Please stop comapring it to the ipod touch just because it runs the same os And looks the same..
