    Since it's an Apple product, I will have to say "no"; I will not be purchasing one.

    When I first heard about the I-Pad i thought it was going to be a touchsceen computer but given its not really what it is.... Is it?
    What's really the difference between a I-Pad and a I-Touch?? or a I-Pad and a I-Phone?

    I really agree with many, Apple its really starting to outdo its self.
    Now for some entertainment.. from FRENCH3z ...... Will it Blend?...

    Got a chance to briefly play with one yesterday. It was fun, google maps was awesome as was youtube. Didn't get a chance to try typing in landscape mode. At $500, it's too expensive, I'd buy one if it was $350. I'm waiting to see what the HP Slate can do. So far, it seems it does everything iPad don't.

    as brokken mentioned, i'd love to be able to take this device and hook it up to a network and diagnose problems or log in to servers via RDC and be able to work from it rather than as an organizer. if it could modified to run Mac OS and get rid of that single-tasking workflow I would probably consider getting one, but for now, my old p3 laptop does more for me than this thing ever will(even new laptops dont have serial ports!). as a network admin it would be a nice if it had more regular functions rather than relying on apps, itunes, and the app store. i really thought it would be a tablet computer, not a glorified ipod, maybe time and consumer inputs will change that.

    The machines are very cool (I got to handle one on Monday) and the user interface and design -- much like all Apple products -- is beyond compare; that being said, I am going to wait through a few iterations until it has a camera, can run either OSX, or there is an increased availability of sophisticated web-based programs -- since there is no disc drive an an inability to use most of my software (Photoshop, etc.).

    Until such time, my MacBook Pro is about as portable a device as I have ever required . . .

    I don't have a need for an iPad at the moment. However I do have an iPhone which I LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! You cannot part me from my iPhone.

    I have been an Apple fan since waaaaaaaaaaaaay back yonder. Apple got behind in marketshare a very long time ago when they refused to license to their OS to other manufacturers like IBM did. That made Apple computers more expensive, thus the proliferation of the IBM clones, now simply called "PCs". In my opinion, Macs have always been superior to PCs. And Apple continues to innovate and dazzle.

    If you are thinking about an iPhone, get it! You'll never look back. :-)

    Oh, and you can get the Doodle Jump app. Best app in the App Store.
