    All the limitations of the iphone, including no real keyboard, no multitasking, lack of I/O connectivity, etc., with none of the mobility. The iphone works because it does things efficiently and neatly in a small phone you can put in your pocket.

    But with the iPad(I can't believe they chose this name. Queue the feminine hygiene jokes LOL!), it's the size of a small laptop, but has none of the flexibility of the laptop. I predict this thing will flop big time. Just my $.02.

    I'm sure the mods will move it to the hundreds of other threads dscussiing the same thing.

    The point of the iPad was to be a middleground for the iPhone and MBP. IMO, it was to make more money for Steve. Magical??? Whatever.

    If by middleground you mean a larger screen iphone then yes you are correct.
