1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I say who cares. Apple iPad is an oversized iPod touch with ebook reader and 3g.

    I'm sure he hasn't demo'd, however, I must say I have an iphone 3G. It is plodingly slow, even on AT&T's "wonderful" 3G network. I can't imagine what this new pad is going to do to that network. For those that don't read the newspaper there was an article about a month ago where the CEO of AT&T was complaining about data usage on their network and how it was slowing everything down. Can you imagine adding a couple of million new pads, and particular if they do the $129 upgrade to 3G (yes, it costs extra). And it's not even 3GS, on their network it will be a joke.

    What I am wondering is what happen to Verizon Wireless? I would have thought Verizon would have got this over AT&T then maybe it wouldn't be a COMPLETE disappointment.

    1. multitasking
    2. phone
    3. camera
    4. USB port
    5. SD storage
    6. GPU
    7. widescreen
    8. keyboard

    I plan to get it. And use my Droid's rooted wirelessly tethering capabilities to run it. So I effectively get the iPad on the Verizon network.

    I have a netbook now, and this seems like a decent replacement for my netbook. Price is right and it knocks two birds out with one stone. Was interested in getting a Kindle for some time now and don't have to deal with it now.

    Actually I have an Archos 250GB portable movie player. It has WiFi and a lot more flexibility than the iPad...you can get it with the Android system as well...for a LOT less.
