    Swing and a miss. This definitely disappoints me. I was thinking it would have a lot more features than it does. It none of the mobility features I completely depend on with my iPhone and has not nearly the same capability I can get from a netbook that is running a full version of Win7 for much less money.

    I am very very disappointed.

    There are lots of reasons to be disappointed with the iPad, but a short list would include:

    No Flash
    No SDHC or MiniSDHC card slot built in
    No Mini USB port
    The screen is smaller than it needed to be...look at the wide margins around it.
    The screen appears to be a high glare one. Good luck using it in less than perfect light.
    No app for light-duty photo editing to email to people.

    That will do for the moment.

    No Flash = No Sale!

    I bet you look it up on youtube and its there.(the same exact video). I do that on my wii, wii doesnt have flash so i go to youtube and look up the video.
    i guess. but the fact that apple needs to bring the flash to the iPad still remains. do you agree?
    Yeah i guess so. But it isnt on my worries. Im more worried about the no multi tasking..-_-. I am a 100% multi tasker and a huge fan of HDMI.

    The lack of multi-tasking and HDMI is both a surprise and a disappointment.

    I need to check the list of things that the Tegra 2 is supposed to do. I am pretty sure that it is supposed to be multi-tasking capable, but I do not recall HDMI specifically. As I recall it, it is "HD capable" which probably means that HDMI might be an option.

    We shall see. Perhaps some competition will make Apple improve their product.

    Cheers

    Steve lied. Without Flash you can not access "all the internet".

    HTML 5 will take care of the video issue regarding flash in the future, and youtube will be using h.264 (I think is what it is) so it should be fine (although Google is a company built on open source, their neglect for using ogg vorbis may hinder them, and pave a new path for a video site to compete with them using open and unrestrictive standards).

    As for flash everywhere else? Totally missed. Don't know why they didn't do this. Yet also, lack of a camera is a big downer for me. I would like to have a file system to keep my stuff organized (which means a SD card reader and at least one USB port would be a very nice addition).

    True, iChat would be an epic quality for the ipad. But, i saw the way they store pictures on it and thats pretty cool.

    I have to say that all in all, it is not as impressive or ground breaking as I was hoping. But having said that, I am still excited and will be getting one. It's just nearly impossible for them to live up to the internet's hype... and with time, it may turn out to exceed the hype, we just need a few more killer apps for it.

    Many people is expecting an webcam for the iPad. I had a webcam on my PC but I can't recall using it at all. If we use iPad the way it was designed for, I do not think the webcam is a necessity at all. It would be a good option though.

    I was not disappointed. It's about what I expected. I just want something that can get online, get to YouTube, playback a bit of music and some video.
    To me, this is a godsend.The fact it has 3G is pretty awesome.

    I think that the problem is that people where expecting more Macbook, less iPhone, and got the opposite. They also expected it to compete with netbooks, which I don't think it's trying to do.

    And on a side note: Do you care that it has a camera? I don't. It's not really necessary Who even uses video chat extensively anyway?
