    my goofy friend who looks to throw in fake boston accents randomly has been calling iPods “iPads” for years.
    that’s all i got.

    If I can migrate data from my old iBook to a new iPad, I’ll probably get one.

    Has to be the worst name for an Apple product ever. Name fail.

    Is it more absorbent than the ibook?

    Pretty underwhelmed so far…just seems like a giant iPod touch.

    But I’ll reserve judgement till the press conference is over.

    Really haven’t seen anything to be impressed by yet. So far it’s just a big iphone.

    Yeah, No OSX, slower processor. For me to bite, it’s going to have to be competitively priced with a Kindle, what I would mostly use it for – and that seems really unlikely.

    Some photos from presenatation here: http://www.macrumors.com/

    As of now, I’m somewhat impressed, but still waiting for the big picture. Other sites have said that it’s confirmed from Jobs himself that the price will NOT be above $800. For this to work, I think it’s got to be in the $400-650 range. Much higher and people will still just buy Macbooks, despite the added portability. My understanding thus far is that while the specs are being summed up as the lovechild of a iPhone and Macbook, the intended purpose is a third technology altogether, not a compromise of the two.

    Yeah, they haven’t mentioned price yet….not a good sign.
