It's substantial but surprisingly light. Easy to grip. Beautiful. Rigid. Starkly designed. The glass is a little rubbery but it could be my sweaty hands. And it's fasssstttt.
Tegra 2 > this, Asus clone incoming
if it was to run a full blown operating system it would require more power alot more power which then means the pad would have to be thicker and bigger better processor and faster processor which then adds the price probally somewhere in the $1000-$2000 bracket and then all this power takes up battery we know now it can go 10 hours but your probally looking at half an hour with a full operating system on it with this more advanced iphone OS it can run longer and use less power and still be fast this is the thing and unfortantly technology isnt yet there to be able to do what they really want to do
you're talking to alot of technical retards. they don't understand cost/production and the industry of new consumables
http://www.fudzilla.com/con... will cost less, do more, more reliable, and people won't label you a tool for carrying around an oversized iPod.
I can see this being huge for the design industry. This completely eliminates the laptop as a middleman device. Just work directly into the slate. Is there a good deal with Adobe for this?
it is running the iPhone OS...you ain't designing squat on this.
The device still lacks the power or features to sway someone buying a laptop. For starters, no multi-tasking= FAIL... Even prehistoric Chinese phones can do multi-tasking (hell even my jailbroken iPod Touch can do it), but Apple doesn't want to hurt it's users sensitive brains by unlocking multi-tasking. Secondly, the thing still will be a pain to type on. On Screen keyboards really don't cut it. I am sure the device will see gazillion units soon, but it's pretty much useless for someone who already owns an iPhone or a IPT (especially a jailbroken one). Will probably wait till next year when they refresh it. The iPhone OS is really starting to look old now. I literally puked seeing the first pics of the OS... Same old thing which hasn't changed in like 4 years.
Why are people so "GAA GAA" about this?????? It's just a big A$$ Iphone/Ipod touch.
And yet, watch it outsell all other tablet wannabe's.
its the same reason people buy MW2 without seeing if the game is worthy or not they both sell on pure hype alone
Will buy anything, and everything apple. It's ignorance, but ignorance is bliss they say.
I like Apple they seem to make SEXY stuff like SONY;) But why can't Micro$oft make anything that works or looks SEXY tho??? ANYONE???... ;-D
in the video when they are flipping through contacts, I just pictured them picking one and putting that huge thing up to their ear like a cellphone
I so am gonna buy this first day when it comes out but there are few downside to it and they are 1ghz apple a4 custom-designed processor and there are no camera plus no os x running but am sure someone will find a way to run it apart from that watching a movie on it will be nice plus u no apple makes the best touch screen so i guess am all up for it
I really dont see the point in this. my netbook was about quarter of price this going to be in England and it can do anything this can do and more. i love my iphone and love the all the games available for it. and have made good amount of money for jail breaking iphones for people. no question this will sell millions hope can jailbreak it just means more money for me.
In a way this going to turn out like MW2, over hyped product that turns to be underwhelming but people are going to buy it like hot cakes anyway, knowing its a technological step back for more money than its actually worth. Apple is just screwing there customers like Activision/IW have.
now if itunes will open up a porn section in their catalog, i say this will be a hit.
To tell you the truth this is the best Tablet I have seen so far, none of the other one's have wowed me in any way but this does. It looks very elegant and decent and it gets the job done.
Its an iphone for 828 bucks. It cannot multi task or run flash. Thats getting the job done? A $300 Netbook can do all that This fails
I'm sure it will sell like crazy but no USB = no sale for me. I understand their decision to leave it out but I would have picked one up in addition to my imac and macbook. This would not have replaced those with the addition of a fracking USB. Don't even get me started on multitasking. Maybe I'll be onboard for the second gen but I doubt it.
looks like Apple is going to try to battle with Microsoft's Surface.
