I'm loving how every news station I've listened to this morning, AOTS on G4, and my friends who are huge apples fans say this this is an epic fail... Haha. It's a jumbo iTouch with acouple other features! But the part that makes me laugh is that it doesn't have any usbs, lol.
If I owned an iPhone then I would think that iSUCK

It seems to me the battery life (10 hours) is what will turn people off to the ipad. I hope to see my son using an e-reader for school books, and this seems like way too much device for that use. Sometimes devices need to do one thing very well, and that's it.
It seems like an expensive, cool netbook without a keyboard. There will be plenty of people to buy it, and if someone builds a very good app for voice input to text, that could make it a bit more useful.
i would but i let my peons do that

It honestly would be better if, as the OP said, they marketed it as an e-book reader on steroids. This would get people hyped for it. People carry around their kindles, and a lot wish they could pull up a browser on it, but they can't. This is the type of user who would want this. But trying to compete against netbooks and laptops is not going to do Apple any favors with this device.
One of the great benefits of an e-reader is you can download any book any time over FREE wireless connectivity. To market the iPad as an e-reader with a monthly fee would have been even a bigger mistake.
