Anyone Interested or Getting the iPad

Well of course unless you didn't watch a news site yesterday or hear someone talking about it, yes Apple revealed their newest product yesterday, the iPad which is probably best described as a 10 inch iPod Touch, it runs basically the same OS as the iPod Touch/iPhone, will come in WiFi and WiFi/3G models and the base price is $499 for the device (16GB, no 3G). So my question is, does anyone want one. I mean I think Apple lost it's mind with this one and I never be caught dead owning one, if I wanted an Apple product it would be an iPod Touch and with how long Microsoft is taking to get the Zune HD to Canada, I might end up buying one.

Well I'm on the fence about it. As a portable movie/media player and ebook device it could not be better. I have a need for neither so those features don't benefit me. The news apps would be great to read in the morning from the ipad rather than a news paper. An actual computer or touch would be less efficient. I generally use my touch at home and it would certainly be nice to have a larger screen. i'm not sure the cost is worth the upgrade. If I didn't have a touch I'd consider buying it. Only consider though.

The interface looks odd to me, they could have put more icons in each row/column, but instead they just made it into a massive iPod.

After hearing about another device similar to this, the iPad kind of seems ridiculous. I mean if I was going to get something like this it would be the HP Slate. It's supposed to run a full Windows 7 operating system, support some gaming and of course because it's using Windows 7, support multi-tasking and most likely Flash as well, two things Apple is missing in the iPad.

True, but Apple has a decently sized hardcore following, so the iPad will sell a few million units as soon as it is launched.

I don't doubt that, there's simply way too many people that love Apple too much for them not to sell units but from a practical standpoint if that HP Slate comes out sooner than later and can actually do what they demoed, I would seriously consider buying one and it would do at least as well as the iPad or slightly worse because even the Slate is still appealing to a market which doesn't really exist.
