Joystiq Hands-on: Apple iPad

Joystiq writes: "Hey, so you know all about the iPhone, right? In the brief time we spent with Apple's new iPad, from a gaming perspective, there's not much more to add. It's a big iPod Touch -- both are missing the iPhone's camera -- but iPad's got a flexible data plan option; no contract required. While Apple showed off some iPad-optimized games during today's keynote, neither Gameloft's new version of N.O.V.A. nor Electronic Arts' new version of Need for Speed: Shift were available for demo. Instead, we took some plain ol' apps for a spin, including Scrabble and Need for Speed: Shift (the current iPhone version; not the upcoming iPad one)."

The story is too old to be commented.

Color me unimpressed for sure. Jobs must be smoking some sort of drug if he thinks this thing will be a proper replacement for a netbook / laptop.

More or less his goal is to get money for a touch screen paper weight.

OS 4 for the iPhone/Touch has Multitasking. I am sure the iPad will. In any case, it is just an over-sized iPod touch. The keynote was also boring as hell. It was not more than the iPhone/Touch all over again, except you can't carry it in your pocket.
