    ..and here comes the truth for all the anti-apple brigade out there, all those complaints that the iPad was too expensive, and under spec'ed.

    I feel a need to rush over to gizmodo to gloat! ;)

    What the hell are they thinking? That's absolutely ridiculous and can only surmise that if they do have an 800 dollar version it will be extremely dulled down and slow. Not that I wanted one, I am switching everything over to Apple products, but just think of all the security problems that thing will have over time not to mention the battery life. I love my 700 dollar iPad.

    it was already updated to be just a placeholder, and the 799 price is the launch price

    Ha! Yes and my wife loves her 500 dollar iPad just as well and I will admit that even though I have the 3G model I rarely if ever use it. Wifi is everywhere. :p
