Notebook writes: "The iPad will have a similar impact on the electronic industry and our lives as did the Walkman. They will be popular, selling well. I think they will be used by a lot of people who will enjoy them. They will be copied by other companies. But if Apple never released the iPad we would use netbooks, notebooks, Tablet PCs, eReaders and mobile phones to do what the iPad does.
The iPad is a 1.0 device which means that it is ready to sell but has some faults. I think Apple will improve on this iteration of the iPad. They've already announced a several improvements coming in 4.0 of the OS. It needs a camera and I cannot believe they left out the Calculator and the Voice Memos apps."
