    I'll just say it again, $200.00 for only 48gb more of space??? This is the only reason why I would not buy one. They can squeeze 160gb into an ipod classic for $249 but only .....OMG I can go on a long rant. It's just ok. I'm sure one of these folks at the event is dying to plug it up to a laptop and try to run Blackra1n on it..LOL

    What an iLetdown The best thing about the whole thing was that Steve is back !!! See what happens when you take time off, your monkeys produce this !

    I hope to god the new iphone is gonna be everything it's hyped to be as i've held off getting a 3gs.... time will tell !

    Like so many others have mentioned, this could have been a killer device if it ran OSX but unfortunately, i'm not gonna spend $600 plus for this when i've still got my trusty macbook and iphone 3g.

    Come on Steve, your fans await another revolution... You won nearly every gadget award going over the last decade for your iphone.... it completely changed the way mobile phones were though and all the other manufacturers had to play serious catchup, but it's geting to the point now where they have caught up and in some cases passed you by... Give us what we want in iphone 4g and se your sights on the next gadget of the decade award

    sorry, i do ramble a bit

    Did anyone feel that Jobs was thinking "How the **** am I gonna justify this thing?" as he presented it? "It's got origami slideshow transitions...and Wifi which allows you to surf the web (like on the iPhones you've had for years)...Running iPhone's OS (no freedom without Jailbreking)." Honestly, it felt like he knew it's a tough sell.

    Really disappointed here. Whatever happened to this thing running snow leopard? Whatever happened to this thing being able to handle CDMA/GSM/LTE/WiMax, why didn't Apple thrown a chip in there that handles that.

    The shape/size/look doesn't bother me, the OS is the one that has me asking questions. So now I should be carrying an iPhone + iPad, but wait they are 1 of the same.

    How exactly is iPhoto on this supposed to work?
    how do you get you photos from iphone to ipad?
    Can you use your iPhone to connect to the net via BT?
    How do you print your iWork Documents?
    Theres still so many questions unanswered?
    On the plus side looks like iPhone 3.2 OS will support our own springboard backgrounds so thats a mobilesubstrate of ram less that ill need to use!

    Nope you can't do that it's a mini sim. Plus it has no regular usb ports so we can't hook up our iphone's to it so we can tether it. Wait a sec what about a bluetooth tether?? Hmmm.
    Someone needs to get one and jailbreak it.

    If it could serve as a graphics tablet (like the Wacom Cintiq), I would buy one. But agreed with the majority, oversized iPod.

    I'm sure you're right, but is there any chance it supports more than one 3G frequency set? If it is in fact only available on AT&T (in US), THAT is likely the most dissapointing feature (or lack thereof) for me. I agree with many of the other "complaints", but I do still think it will be fun to mess around with and play games with my 4 yr old daughter. A good way to keep her interested in gadgets and technology (although she's nearly a pro with my iTouch / iPhone). There's bound to be plenty great educational apps and games for my family to enjoy.

    I agree with Reznor on the PS app! That would be KILLER!

    Everyone complaining doesnt deserve to own an iPad. What did you expect? This is the first model. And less is more. This is why you shouldn't ever read into the rumors. They were never leaked or from the inside. Some fat guy with cheetos all over his face made up what he thought would be "cool" and spread all of the rumors that you guys start believing. If you knew anything about Apple you knew never to believe it until you see it.

    That being said, I see a lot of use for the iPad for me and I think it is wonderful. It will run its own version of iWork as well which is amazing. It supports 3G which is also a huge plus. Priced much cheaper than you all thought as well, with 3 size and pricing options. You guys should all check out Gizmodo's review on the iPad.

    The only thing I am upset about is that I will have to wait another 3 Months just to touch one
