    It's all relative - As long as you don't expect too much all will be good. E-reader - sure and maybe even a very good one. An office productivity tool - probably not.

    Are you serious? Have you used an iPod Touch or iPhone, have you seen any of the office apps in the app store or even tried any?

    So often I'm seeing comments made about obvious things that are already capable on an iPhone let alone an iPad, even the reviewers missed half the boat, there is a whole ocean of ability for the iPad out there. Things I already do on my iPhone most people can't fathom or attempt on their net-book or laptop, they see the iPad as a consumption of data device, I see it as an open canvas.

    Just the remote access software like vnc and rdp from various app store dev's and all the other productivity apps in the app store, half alone just working on the iPad makes it much more than a lot of people give credit.

    Personally I'm tired of hearing about Flash and camera or multitasking, they all sound like jealous fools that just dont grasp the concept of what the iPad is or will be.

    I should make a video once I get my iPad, just to show everyone that is not sure what can be done and point out some of the less obvious items, while demonstrating some of the more elaborate than just reading ebooks.

    Yeah, how about checking out the date on that "review" you refer to. It was Gizmodo's hit piece that was released less than 2 hours after the Jan. 27 announcement. Without ever holding one, let alone using one they were trying to run it down.

    Gizmodo hates Apple and if you notice don't do much of anything but complain about Apple and it's users. The actual reviews coming in from respected journalists (i.e. not part time bloggers in their parents basement) in the technology field are quite positive.
