    Without an eInk display, it's a sub-par ereader. So it fails at even that.

    Put another way, if this is an ereader it is, by far, the worst ereader on the market.

    Yeah as soon as Steve Jobs said, "It's better than a laptop" I immediately lost interest, because it does not even compare to a laptop...

    Wait a minute , Steve was right , it is better than a laptop/netbook , at being a paper weight , a very expensive paper weight at that .
    To Droid or not to Droid is no longer a question , DROID!

    Most netbooks have a webcam, iPad doesn't. For use with Skype etc. (video calls)
    Most netbooks have two outputs, iPad doesn't.
    iPad can't multi-task....
    The iPad can not do Flash content...

    After all the hype, it's a sub par device. It's a really big iPhone with the same limitations as the iPhone.

    My 2nd gen Kindle lasts for 2 weeks of reading on a charge...the iPad will last for 10 hours. For reading traditional books with text and no pictures...the Kindle will remain the better tech option for me. If I need to read magazines, textbooks, newspapers with photographs...I can see the allure of an iPad. But to call the iPad a "Kindle killer" is ridiculous. The Kindle costs $259 and comes with free 3G coverage. The iPad is vastly more expensive and is made even more expensive if you'd like to have your content delivered wirelessly.

    No GPS
    No Camera (with LED Flash)
    No Multitasking
    No OLED Screen
    An extremely disappointing 256 MB of RAM!
    No Additional Touch Gestures
    No Videocalling/conferencing/iChat
    The enormous bezel is a massive eyesore. I thought Apple was all about design, so how they could make such a large and fugly bezel for a premier device escapes me.
    No Handwriting Recognition or Support for a Stylus. A huge selling point of any Tablet is to be able to take notes in classes and such.
    No Wireless Syncing or File Transfers
    No File Management or Freedom to download files (even documents) from online
    No Ability to run custom Apps not preapproved by Apple and sold via the App Store
    A Very Low Resolution Display with 25% fewer PPPs than the iPhone or iPod Touch
    No integrated TV antenna or Radio antenna (They even developed a HD DTV Tuner for use in cellphones to allow users to pick up OTA HDTV signals on the go! Why they didn’t include this technology in this device I won’t understand)
    No Video Out
    According to Apple’s page on the product, the maximum resolution it is capable of playing MPEG4s at is 640◊480 resolution at 30 fps. Not even HD! It features a 1 Ghz processor that significantly slower than just about every single notebook on the market today.
    No OTA Sync With Apple TV or Servers To Stream Video
    No Low Reflective Screen Mode for high contrast Ebook Reading that doesn’t hurt your eyes
    Only 64 mbs of HDD space
    No Gamepad attachment for Gaming With Physical Buttons/Tactile Feedback
    No ability to connect to a bluetooth mouse/keyboard
    No RFID/IR to use it as a remote, or to tag it to yourself
    No Replacable/Removable Batteries
    No Java or Flash support (no hulu.com)
    No USB Port (can’t hook it up to a printer to print off an iWorks project, cant connect a USB key that has some documents stored etc)
    No ability to connect to an extrernal hdd, or even to pop in an SDCard Slot

    Nuff said
