    Not sure how anyone could be disappointed in a product that isn't even out yet. I'm sure there are quite a few more features that Apple hasn't let out of the bag yet, give it time.

    I just want them to hurry up and get the pre-order going so I can get my order in.

    Thumbs up Can't Wait

    First of all, I can't wait, same as Superbike81. I am tired of hearing surmisal with nothing hard to digest, a merger between Adobe and Apple, Steve Job's having an iPad surgically implanted on his left thigh. My response to the question this thread poses is that everything depends on software development. What we see right now may not be impressive, just iPhone crossovers, but when developers have time to work on content, the iPad could be the hottest thing around. That is why I think Apple is making a mistake not making more info available. The developers will only want to be developers if they think there is money to be made. I read things about AT & T, and Slingbox, but when I contact either of them, they are at least officially in the dark. When I stopped in at AT & T at my local mall, they didn't even know what an iPad was. They thought it was something you use to protect a detached cornea.

    Yeah I think that when people actually start holding them and playing around with all the new BA apps that they will change their minds quickly

    Only slightly disappointed with the hardware. It's an empty box after all until it's got some software. Not that worried about the lack of bells and whistles. I guess I was just hoping for the equivalent power of my now 3+ year old MacBook Pro so that it could run a full OS, which would provide more flexibility when filling it with the software that will make it useful (and thus make it more useful). I was hoping to be able to toss my old MacBookPro.

    I would have liked a more innovative on-screen keyboard solution. And rather than stick rigidly to a smooth aluminium back for some purity of form ideal I would have liked some kind of contouring so that it can be held with one hand and operated/typed on with the other when standing or sitting somewhere with no desk (or the ability to put your knees up). But I guess we'll see stick-on handholds appearing from third party suppliers.

    I read an article somewhere that the reason for the different form factor SIM card was to prevent you from taking the SIM card out of your iPhone and putting it in the iPad when you wanted to use it. Who really wants to pay for a data plan for the iPhone and the iPad?

    Actually, I am looking forward to seeing competing devices using the NVidia Tegra 2 SOC which is, apparently, more advanced than Apple's SOC.

    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.
