My personal look on it; wtf lol my hd2 has better specs.

Pros: well apparently it has the best touchscreen there is
Cons: No multitasking (wtf..)
No flash player
No tweaking the os
Ugly enlarged iphone
You need a conversion plug for EVERYTHING, even usb
Shitty resolution
No camera
Models that dont do 3g, mini sim card in the models that do
More cons..

Also, i just couldn't resist posting these hehe:

I would like to hear from some mac user though, do you like steve's new gadget and if so, will you buy it?

Ugly was my first thought. I need more than that one button on the front. No multitasking is a bunch of bull.

I really wonder what this device was meant for, you cant browse normally, you cant watch most video formats fullscreen, you cant do more then 2 things at once, if you want to go for the 3g version you will have to get yourself a new simcard, normal ones (that work in ALL netbooks) are to large, that gaming example in the video looked like shit, i can go on for quite a while, im baffled, i could have worked for apple, just make shit products that look good and your in business

i cant understand it either... apple are touting this thing as a new era in tablet devices... BULLSHIT!

its just a big iPhone with better screen res...

there is no way the iPad can compete with ANY tablet PC, netbook, notebook or even current smartphones!

I fear the device may actually do well. I am thinking it may sell good right away, but then lose steam as the months go on.

of course it will sell well! it will outsell every other tablet device and be hailed as a resounding success... doesnt mean its any good though.

people who buy apple products are COMPLETELY clueless about technology.

hehe...I like this pic - it's real, one pic tells more than 1000 words.
If you use 4 iPads and glue them together you'll have what others are going to have with one device calles "nettop" or "smartphone" :D


I don't suggest anyone buying this device.
Wait until Entourage Edge is in 2nd or 3rd generation... with mirasol-color display and it'll get bettre software, hardware and battery-times... even now it has two displays: color LCD... and black/white eInk. While using eInk you are able to use it up to 16hours!
and you can write on the eInk-screen using the included Wacom-pen !

It's the best device for school or university... I guess you even can take notes into PDF files with the pen!.
LCD is a touchscreen, too.
And it uses Android as OS. It's a modified linux for mobile devices - optimized for low-power-usage.
NO MAC-OS or iPhone-OS !
