    Notice the iPAD Forum ad link on OUR Droid Forum home page!!! Thought that was funny.

    99% of the blogs are posting a $499 price for the iPAD.. It's more like $829 if you want to get the most out of it. Interesting.

    We got an email from the droid forums administrator.

    They arent apple haters, just technology geeks.

    I think the idea of this forum isnt to hate apple or iphones. Its to celebrate android!

    Agreed!! No flash? Soooo.. do i keep my laptop next to me so I can view the 50% of the websites out their in flash? So disappointed. I actually think they have some very intuitive technology but this is like a car with no engine.:mad:

    So then don't buy one, and don't go to that forum.

    Problem solved.

    Absolutely! It's as crazy as a camera without a keyboard! :) Or did you mean the other "flash?"

    I'm not impressed with the ipad at all, the half a** working Android tablets look 100 times better.

    I cannot see personal reason to have one of these.

    Please watch language and references.

    I want people to debate their likes and dislikes but there is no need to go overboard.

    Thanks guys and girls

    Here is one of "my" personal reason, if I can get all the text books through their iBook store, I definitely will get one. Not just me, but many many college students will do a same. same to highschool's kids. They don't have to carry all those books everyday. Do you know how many books that I have to carry each day in high school?

    You have to admire Apple that they can get all these deals from the publishers, game makers, etc. Make them believe in you.

    How large is the netbook market anymore? Some friends and I have been debating this subject today, and I have yet to see the reason to have one.

    Originally they were a nice, affordable means if you couldn't snag a laptop. With the prices (and size) of laptops now, I cannot see forking out this amount of money for either a dumbed down, portable computer or an oversized ipod touch (however you want to look at it).

    It looks sexy, that is for sure. I guess my biggest question is if you have a smart-phone, laptop, or both....what would this be useful for? This guy kind of summed up my feelings towards it, but since people have already mentioned they would want to purchase one on these forums I'd like to hear why.

    *edit*

    Nolanandy gave me a pretty good reason, although wouldn't an e-reader be a much cheaper option?

    Can you imagine someone holding the iPad up to take a picture? LOL.

    I don't think the iPad forum is the same group as the Droidforums. I don't think so.

    Anyway, I don't hate Apple products. Hell, I had an Apple II and just about every Apple up to my current MACPRO Nehalem Quad machine.

    Although, I'm betting the iPad is going to be far off the mark sales wise. Then I'll buy Apple stock and wait for the "next" revolution.

    I would not buy this. This is an apple fail. No HDMI, no usb, no multitask, nothing really to impress me. I literally have no need for this, my netbook does 10x more functions while having the same form factor, this basically is just my ipod touch. But more pixels, for 800 dollars. You cant squeeze blood out of a rock. That seems to be apples new idea.
