Many have been critical of the iPhad touchtoy. No need to rehash. But perhaps the critics should pause until: 1. Product launch. The keynote repeatedly said you had to actually use the iPad, up close and personal, to "get it." To try it out, see how easy and effortless its use is. Do Jobs and iPad supporters have a point? Maybe they do. For example, take the iPod Touch. Looking at it remotely, I wasn't impressed with it. "Big deal, a small data device with an Apple logo." But when you use an iPod Touch, it really is a great little info device. Perhaps we'll have the same hands-on reaction to iPad. Maybe. 2. iPad 2.0. Maybe they'll address some of the drawbacks either before launch or during the second product round, including multitask and USB. And maybe Apple will introduce an iPad with better resolution. Because I'm still not sold on this thing as a dedicated ebook reader, or anything else, really. Hence maybe we need some evolution until users can say whether the iPad is win or fail.
