    The ipad; it's a ipod touch xl.
    It's main focus is the mainstream market. Here is the good and the bad about the ipad and why I will buy one.
    The Good:
    Big Multitouch Display
    $14.99 250mb 3G (Starting Price)
    0.5 or Half an inch thin
    Big Screen
    1.6lb for 3G Model
    Fast processor
    Runs iphone os faster than any ipod or iphone to date.

    The Bad:
    No Camera
    No Multitasking
    Not pocketable

    I think this is a device more aimed for the developer market/casual gamer.
    This is going to be a great purchase to 1g Ipod Touch Users like me!
    First off; it's got 3G for $14.99 with no contract! Sure Att sucks but their's no contract! Thats right it's prepay! That means Verizon fans you can get ipad! It has a mic and a speaker(the ipod touch 1g doesn't).

    This was built for the Apps. Say if your fingers ever get tired of crunching on the ipod touch or iphone; problem solved! Developers can add more to apps, make apps bigger, make context menu boxes(like the new mail app)and much more. You can even call people through voip(the mic and speaker). Things i can do on this that make it worth it.
    I can:
    Play bigger more sophisticated apps; there's support for complete hand gestures.
    Call people through voip.
    Record my voice
    Send texts through a free text app!

    Everything is more touch friendly you could say. It's like an MS Surface. And multitasking? Apple, just like in the past they will probably add it as a software update(4.0) and charge $9.99 for it. If you want a camera wait until 2nd Generation. Overall it's a good deal. Maybe in June they will drop the price to 399.99 and include the 4.0 software for free and maybe up the processor to 1.2gz. Don't expect a new version until after September 21st 2010. I am going to wait until July and see if they don't add the 4.0 software for free and up the processor. I can see myself doing advanced gestures with my palms while playing a game or drawing.

    No Flash. Limited multimedia. No hulu.com. No Flash content. Partial content displayed on many sites.

    Exactly, the iPhone was just a phone until the developers got their hands on it.

    You have to remember, everyone hated the iPod back in 2001 when it was announced, and all the threads back then are basically exactly the same as today.

    The iPad App Store is going to be amazing. I can see a multi-touch Photoshop coming to there, and I can't wait until someone creates a digital music studio for it.

    You have seen what developers create for a 3.5" screen, and now there is 10" of space. You can pretty much guaranty that all the people hating on the device right now, will be buying that same device in a years time.
    The iPad is a platform, a solid platform.

    The iPhone is still just a phone, but the apps make it a smart phone. The iPad is just a tablet, but the apps will make it a computer.

    It's going to be the perfect fit for my wife. She has never used her superdrive and has a whopping 40gb of her 250 filled with a lot of nothing...including her operating system. For her it makes perfect sense. I applaud the launch of it. Now I can sell her MB and get more goodies for mine:). She is so stoked about trying it out. I think I am going to opt for the 65gb model with no 3g.

    Aren't you doing the same? I'm not spamming. I'm stating my opinion. The iPad is handicapped, it's flawed with a incomplete web browser. I have a right to express this as much as I want.

    @OP

    You said "Not Pocketable" :eek:

    I would think with all the kids wearing their pants half way down their ass there would plenty of room to just stick it in the top and tighten the belt a notch :)

    Actually, no. I'm not doing the same. I'm not going around forums like, "the iPad is amazing, it is the best thing ever, etc" I just came across reading this thread and I saw your post so i couldn't resist my self....

    anyway, I have better things to do, so...

    I agree the iPad is a nice tool to have. But, I know many people who won't buy it due to its lack of a real web browser. If the iPad was developed with a full browser I'd buy one in a heartbeat. I don't care for how Apple introduced the iPad as the "best web experience" when it's clearly not true.

    Also, they should be open about it not supporting Flash. At work several folks asked me about the iPad and once I told them I wasn't getting one because it didn't support Flash they weren't interested either. And, they're not "IT" folks. Just regular folks.

    Now, c'mon, you KNOW that when Steveo's mouth is moving he is spinnin' ! He wouldn't be SJ if he didn't resort to puffery and embellishment of the truth.

    For me, the iPad is severely handicapped, and just doesn't fit in with me. Again, Apple have control over me, not the other way round.
