  1. iPad

    I want one D:

    http://www.apple.com/ipad/

    I watched the entire event. I was hoping for some sort of an announcement with OS 4.0 or some flash support, but sadly none. Boo....

    This thing looks sexy has heck and looks like it'll be insanely fun to play with. Since it's running a somewhat modified version of the touch/phone OS, I can't wait to see what the hackers out there do for it. Cydia for the iPad? Yes please.

    No Flash, No Camera, No Multi-tasking, No Deal.
     
  3. Don't see why you'd want a camera on a tablet PC :P

    But yeah, no multi-tasking is a big turn off for me. And no proper SDK for Windows.
     
  4. Reag My name is an anagram for a reason

    It's a pointless gimmick made by apple again and all the cool kids will have this urge to buy it.
    Sorry shinkz but it is a pointless gimmick.

    Plus it's name sounds like someone said iPod wrong.
     
  5. If it hits for around £350 or so in the UK I'll pick one up just for shits and giggles. If it comes over with a direct $500=£500 then fuck that.

    I want one for it's design alone. If somebody manages to install bootcamp/vm on it, then it'll probably be an insta-buy. I'm waiting to see what Asus is coming up with with it's tablet in the works.
     
  6. The only reason anyone would buy it is because they think it's cool.
     
  7. Guilty as charged.
     
  8. Spykodemon Disabled account

    Do you think it can run World of Warcraft?
     
  9. Reag My name is an anagram for a reason

    Does it run crysis?
     
  10. Jagamuta Cabbage was here!

    LOL
     
  11. Since this is Apple we're talking about. I doubt it can even run minesweep.
     
  12. er*
     
  13. Reag My name is an anagram for a reason

    Maybe, but I'm sure it will run iSweeper. :roll:

    As an original iPod Touch 1st Gen Early adopter, i will, never, never, buy this shit! FOR SURE!
     
  16. gRiMrEaPeRsco Thunder ... wait for it ... Penis

    Apple = pathetic failure

    touch screen = smudge marks on the screen = fail

    i'd rather just upgrade my computer
     
  17. Knud Phat beats only

    iPhail...

    It has a ARM quadcore (not even at full speed, because of heat issues), but pretty useless, if it cannot even browse/view flash websites (I guess, that ~50% of the popular websites out there, use flash in 1 way or another.)
    But too many people will buy this 10" ipod touch.

    Also: HP seems to work on a tablet pc for 5 years... but nothing launched.
    And also Asus, Acer, etc are working on something similar.
    Let the pricewar begin!

  19. It's come a long way from an e-reader. I saw the HP the other day on engadget. MSI also has a nice looking one coming but I'm waiting mostly for Acer and Asus to show off what they can do before really diving in to anything.
