    Lol, it's going to be a fail here in UK, the fact that it has that microsim and no full web browsing is fail tbh. It's too expensive. $499 for the entry model is a rip off.

    so what if it has a micro SIM card. the only difference between a regular SIM card and a micro SIM card is the plastic that surrounds the chip itself. you can just cut up your SIM card down to make it work on the iPad, although that's not very practical, you can still make it work. Flash, meh...

    The iPhone 2g was made available at $600 for 2months before the $200 price drop, what do you say to that? Today, how much is it to buy an iPhone 3g? just $99!

    The iPad features are way over priced, a $200 dollar price drop is reasonable for the flash drive in itself, they could still add another $100 price drop for the 3g radio as well... it's not a dream buddy, unlike appletv this device will come out every year with more "new" features added to the line up.

    I'll buy the ipad for movie watching I guess, but I'm not choosing this based on looks alone. I could care less what the ipad does because my iPad mini has the same functions.

    Purses are not only girlish, they're made for girls just like skirts. Do you wear skirts?

    The iPad is girlish like the color pink, if you like pink then IMO that's kinda girlish too but that's only my opinion. you dig?

    Flash-free Hulu will be coming to the iPad soon, in development now? | 9 to 5 Mac
    for streaming media don't count on anything outside of iTunes. Flash is used to create complex animation (not just rectangles) and multiplayer games.

    90% of all videos you see on the web is Flash! Interactive objects often use music, sliders, drop menus etc.

    I don't find the iPad overpriced. In fact I plan on buying several of them. If you need to wait til it fits in your budget then there's nothing wrong with that.

    Why would I cry over a price drop? If it drops a couple hundred dollars than that's great for people buying it at that point.

    How long did it take for the iPhone 3G to drop that much in price??? It was a second generation device that didn't drop in price till the third generation version was out. You're not gonna see a first generation iPad go for $99 anytime soon, or even for under $300.

    I agree, you can grab a netbook for around $300. So I think they need to work on the price to push the iPad. I've almost bought a netbook, but I'm just waiting to see what all the iPad can do.

    Netbook= miniature size garbage
    iPad=Pocket Gold!

    Kidding, but seriously, The iPad isnt a netbook. A netbook is really a useless little computer. It reminds me of those little plastic laptops kids in pre-school use to learn how to read.

    Lol I'd gladly pay an extra $100 (maybe even $200) to get the iPad right now, so why would I care if they dropped it by that much a month or two after launch?

    Done on a net book entirely. Oh yea that net book is also running osx snow and Win XP and is upgradeable to better ram and memory than the iPad. I like the concept of iPad but the price for an intermediate device is insane. I can't do that on an iPad or my iPhone. However it does do flash and multiprocessing beautifully otb. So untill the iPad is running an open operating system like ubuntu I'm out.
