    The iPad is out!
    Well the long waited iPad is out!
    What are your thoughts, opinions. Are you going to buy one?
    Post your thoughts!

    I think it will be an absolute run like always, people standing in line for days.
    And the 9.7" screen is gorgeous, not like the small iPhone screen.
    $499 start price, unlocked, no bond contract. 3G Optional. This will be a killer

    The only thing that will hold me back will probably be the price range.(Wrong, its only $499 starting)

    Since I really don't have a need for one, no I will pass. But then again I have a lot of toys I really don't need. "Honey where is the credit card?"

    I don't see it as being useful. Its nothing more than an oversized ipod touch/iphone. Why not just use a laptop?

    ipad looks interesting and sure has a lot of pluses including pricing, but didn't hear:

    MULTI-TASKING

    without multi-tasking capabilities, i'd have to leave it at the store

    It's a glorified iPod Touch with 3G capabilities.

    Specs:

    11:16 AM: He's building up to the price tag by showing off all the various features. Listen to the pundits, he says, "under $1000 or $999." When we set out to develop the iPad, we not only had very ambitious technical goals and UI goals, but also had a very aggressive price goal: we want to put this in the hands of lots of people. Thrilled to announce iPad pricing starts at $499... for 16GB model. 32GB is $599 and 64GB is $699. These are all Wi-Fi versions. With 3G, add $130 to each model. $629 $729 and $829. Six models. Even the most expensive one is $829. We think it's an unbelievable price point. When can you get them? 60 days worldwide availability of the Wi-Fi models he says, 30 days more for 3G models.

    Want one, will get one. Party
    My mind is the weapon. Everything else is merely an accessory.

    I don't want to carry around a $2000 laptop and get it stolen, I'd rather lose the $499 than the $2000.

    I really,really want one. But AT&T?!!! I live in the city limits of Phoenix,AZ ..one of the largest cities in this country and can't get their 3G coverage! So what if the cost is low if you can't get it! I still do not have an iPhone because of AT&T. And as far as I know Verizon no longer uses Sim cards. Besides you really need that 3G for downloading quickly. I've been an Apple supporter before there was an formal Company. Steve.. you really let a lot of people down and are going to lose a lot of potential customers including me.

    This is about as much of a joke as the Apple TV was. The only market for this is devout Apple kool-aid drinkers, just as it is for the Apple TV. A neat toy, but too limited and pricey for the masses.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
