    You are joking! That is pathetic. It appears they have really missed it this time.

    I just don't see a market for it...

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ THIS!

    Holy crud I was disappointed with this thread's lack of insight. (The topic was good but it just turned into an iPad = suxlol thread. Sorry OP) The iPad is a decent product as is, a lot less than it could've been. But the hacking capacity for that thing will be HUGE!!! I won't get one straight off just because I would like to wait for some decent hacks/mods to come out.

    iPad plus a new multitouch linux distro? Can we say "awgghghhhghghhgble"? <--{Drooling)

    I have to admit that apple has been the poster child of innovation. They started to launch home pcs, then come pcs to the home. The launch thinkpads (laptops), pc follows. The biggest jump in technology was the ipod which brought along mp3 players. The iphone allowed for internet and had apps and the ipod. Apple innovation had lead the world into a new way of thinking. Heck we would not have the droid if it wasnt for the iphone.
    With that said I do not know, well I do know where they were going but the took a great idea and watered it down with restrictions. Now dell, toshiba, or hp is going to take the same concept and add the flash and multitouch and features apple refuse to add and take advantage of apple's arrogance.

    If google was at all smart they would release a android tablet, complete with flash and debut the chrome OS.

    I think the DROID beats the iPad definately. Who wants a big version of the iPhone? Have you seen the UI? It absolutely sucks.

    But how much you want to bet Apple's flawed OS will be jailbroken in about 2 days after it's release? :icon_ devil:

    For a tablet PC, I'd rather run a Linux distro, Mac OS or Windows. Probably in that order, since I like security without CPU-sapping anti-virus programs in the background sniffing at everything.

    I wouldn't want Android as it is presented on the Droid no more than I'd lust after a huge iPod.
