So the iPad is "just a big iPod touch?". Can't some people see how going from a 480x320 3.5" to a 1024x768 9.7" multi-touch screen will make a world of difference when it comes to apps and their interfaces? An average finger takes like 1/5th of the iPhone screen width in portrait orientation, it's the bare minimum size a touch screen can be before becoming extremely limited or unusable. Having a higher-res 3.5" or 4" screen wouldn't make much of a difference. With the iPad screen, not only you get more than 6x the screen estate, but you also cross a threshold where multi-touch technology can blossom, where new kinds of interface are possible. Oh and please, those who stated that the iPad was "just a big iPod touch?" when they actually meant "while the big screen will bring tons of new possibilities it, doesn't have flash and multi-tasking like the iPod touch", please don't waste time replying to this post. If you're able to realize the possibilities that a multitouch screen 6x bigger than the iPod touch screen, I feel that it's misleading and deceiving to state that it's just a big iPod touch. I guess that some anger from the disappointment that it wasn't as open as you wanted, or simply some Apple hatred can explain such a blanket statement, but it doesn't make it more logical. Obviously, as more and more iPad-specific apps will make their way into the app store it will be harder and harder to state that.
