I watched yesterday's Keynote and Steve Jobs repeatedly emphasized how much thinner the iPad 2 is. But IMO, thinner is not necessarily better. If the original iPad was as thick as a laptop, then sure, being thinner would be an improvement. But I have held an iPad in my hands and the thickness was quite comfortable with the blunt side edge. On the other hand, I own an iPod Touch 4G and I have never cared for the sharp tapered edge. For me, the 4G is too thin and I have placed a cover over it to make the edges easier on the hands. Weighing less is one thing, but thinness should not sacrifice ergonomics. I swear, the designers at Apple must have a fetish over this lust for thin. It is even more absurd if it is reason Apple must skimp on features like decent cameras or a higher dpi screen because current tech is not quite small enough to fit in that shallow of a form factor.
