    People bring up a camera, in part, for a front facing one as many saw this as a potential great niche device for video chatting type purposes. Also because in part just about every netbook, something that Jobs directly compared it to, has one installed already as well.

    Too big for a phone, too small to be useful for anything else, and a phone-style OS. No point. Besides, tablets have been out for several years and few are interested.

    Classic Apple style over function. Apple is much more of a lifestyle seller than an actual maker of useful things.

    Why would I want that POS when I have a laptop that can do all that plus? It is not even that much bigger? OK it's allot bigger, lol.

    I was under the impression Apple were bringing out a device to corner the ebook market and there was little mention, from what i can gather, it would come with a multitude of functions.

    I feel its definitely over priced [although i,m not sure by how much, the UK are still in the dark]

    Basically its an ebook reader, with Internet access [if desired] which will enable the user to collect his daily paper, amongst other things. Would i want it to do anything else???

    Aside from night-time reading (and I would prefer a book light attachment with e-ink screen technology), and what looks to be a much better search or organization scheme, I hold very little faith in the iPad for a book reader.

    " A Chinese company has warned that it will sue Apple for copyright infringement if it tries to release the iPad in China

    The Shenzhen Great Loong Brother company alleges that the iPad design is based on its P88 tablet, right down to the casing and bezel around the screen. The company said that if Apple were to release the iPad tablet in China, it would seek an injunction against it.
    "We won't have any choice but to report them," Xiaolong Wu, the company president, told the Spanish newspaper El Mundo. "It will certainly affect our sales." ... "

    Crap, Apple is evil it produces nothing of value. It creates a "buzz" or in other words it creates false promises.
