    Forget the iPad, I want a giant DROID!

    After seeing the disappointing iPad, which is basically a giant iPhone, I thought it would be cool if Motorola made a giant DROID with a giant sliding keyboard. I would buy one of those, anyone else?

    I am as huge an Apple fanboy as there is and even I thought this was disappointing.

    This is a giant iPhone with no multitasking, no flash, no voice capability, and SMS capability.

    In short, it's an iPod Touch on steroids.

    Sad.

    I'd be happier with the announcement of a Verizon iPhone at this point.

    I too am disappointed with the iPad. I was expecting it to be Apple's take on a Netbook only without a keyboard. Like a 10" Touchpad version of a MacBook with built in 3G. Something that would actually run Mac OS or at least a slightly watered down version of it. Not an oversized iPod Touch.

    LOL double LOL that is too funny!!

    Here are my thoughts:

    First impression... Nothing I want. Why?

    Too big to carry around. It is a "stay at home thing" And if I am at home with it why wouldn't I use my laptop. Much more flexible. Is it supposed to me a replacement for a laptop? I don't know. Is it a book reader? Yes, but for me it is too big, the same reason I didn't buy a Kindle DX, too big. Yes it is color. But I no longer read children's books. THe books I read do not have pictures in them... What else... I think it is another $30/month subscription. So, in addition to my monthly Internet access, fee my monthly cell phone fee I have to tack on another $30 for the iPad. I haven't heard how much it costs, have you? I suspect the cost will range fro $600 to $1000. Way too much money.

    I like my Droid, My Thinkpad and my Kindle, I see no reason to replace any of them.. I think Apple is creating a market that there isn't a demand for...

    I'm sure I am in the minority...
