Well Gizmodo will be doing "live" coverage...but that just means a live blog with photos. Sometimes Apple hosts it's own press events. Not sure if there will be live coverage tho...if anyone finds it within the next 45 mins PLEASE let us know!

Does Apple stream this stuff?

They have in the past...I want to say the first iPhone unveiling was streamed live on their site.

You know with all the bad press the iPad has received because of no multitasking it does not make sense that 5 days after they release the iPad they release multitasking. If they knew 4.0 was coming out with it why not shut the bad press down with a one sentence press release. "When released OS 4.0 will have multitasking."

Well, if multitasking really is a part of OS 4.0 then maybe they should have said something....but I think honestly they should have released the iPad as the first OS 4.0 device out of the box! That way they would have had something really new to show. I'm guessing with all the iPad clones hitting the market they just wanted to get it out first knowing first day early adopters would gladly buy it as is and know more was to come. Now once the new OS hits they will get even more interest.

Apple is a pretty smart company..I think they know what their doing.

That would have been great and I guess it depends on when 4.0 ships also, if it doesn't ship until July then it wasn't going to be in the iPad.

Also if they rushed and shipped it with bugs that would have slowed the sales of iPads.

I love it the way it is, it just does so many things it takes awhile to do a demo for people.

I agree. But apple works their own way and is pretty successful at this. Rumors going around that they are going to produce 5" ipads. I believe i read it on 9to5mac.com

I saw that too and think that would be odd. I think the current size is as small as I would like it to be....5" is only a little larger than the iPod Touch...what would be the point. Now I could see a 15" with a built in kickstand as more of a laptop replacement.
