    I agree with some of the other comments. First, this is not a phone, well maybe it is after installing skype or iCall like I have done with my ITouch. I can only see one reason to get this and that is because of the bigger screen. I do a lot of photography so photos will be nice. Watching movies will be better. These of course I can do on my hi def Acer Aspire 5810-4657 with hdmi output. Also has the led screen. So getting the iPad would be just another over priced toy for me. But then again, I would take it apart to see what makes it tick and see how much I would charge people to fix them after they drop them a few times like I already do with iPhones

    A bit hypocritical, don't you think?

    People who sit back and say "we'll see" aren't the ones that make the difference.

    People speculate that the Ipad sucks, people speculate that it's awesome. You can just sit there, come back to us in a year with your full Ipad critique, once you've discovered and used every single feature. Take your time, get your review spell-checked, grammar-checked, butt-checked, organise a focus group.

    Or you could just go wild and have an opinion now. Livin dangerous, man.

    4 secs into the video, is it a camera or a reflection?

    I don't get why would you tell someone NOT to buy an iPad when that someone already said they WON'T..

    People who uses the term "fanboy" are arrogant and not intelligent sometimes. You are going to have to wait before judging the iPad.

    I will look forward to this to see if it is worth the money to spend on.

    Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

    Haha, all you whiners talking smack about the iPad being a giant iPhone. First of all, the iPad isn't designed to be a phone. That's not even the focus with the device. The focus of the device is for a better online experience, one where you can manipulate the internet with your fingers basically. You all are so conditioned to using the iPhone that you feel anything similar to an iPhone is garbage. Had Jobs released the iPad before the iPhone I'm sure there would have been a different response.

    If you like using your iPhones then you'll like using an iPad, simple. Who wants to stare at an iPhone all day to view websites, check messages on popular sites, etc? First of all, iPhones are small mobile phones. iPads are tablets.. there is a difference, geez. If you don't want or like an iPad then go get something else. You bashing all these Apple fanboys, well obviously you're a fanboy too for complaining, it makes you appear as if the only products worth getting are Apple products. You're just as bad as they are. At least with them they're happy with it.

    "......Yeah Apple, we'll see how much people "love" your giant iPhone. It's obvious they are trying pretty hard to get the attention the iPad will need."
