Apple iPad, Underwhelmed? Will you buy one?

The Apple tablet for the masses is here and it’s called the Apple iPad. I’m sure Apple conducted hours of user research & feedback to decide on the name iPad. Right? I really liked the idea of the tablet being called Canvas though. So what are my initial thoughts?

When will the iPad Pro be announced? You know, the grown up version capable of running professional software like Photoshop?

The truth of the matter is that I will somehow convince myself to buy one. An ideal device for the coffee table, beside your bed, on the toilet (having the iPhone has changed the way I poop), or while travelling. What do you think, will you buy one? Will the first iPad usher in a new era of power tablets to be released by Apple over the next 10 years? Or will Apple keep the iPad line focused on entertainment with no real plans to offer a full OS version?

  2. Nope, Not impressed at all. In fact what I am impressed by is the pretty stellar looking Notion Ink Adam. Android based and is running some pretty good hardware. The iPad has dropped the ball, with rehashed iPhone OS. C’mon, even Windows 7 Series looks rocking

    It all depends on what you want it for, it is NOT a tablet pc, it’s just a netbook with a multitouch screen.

    no matter how much trash talking people do about this device it will take over the world same way the iPod and iPhone did.
    i’ve used the iPad for a week now and although theres TONS of stuff i’d like to see on it .. (usb/cam/and 100 other things) it’s still a very much a revolutionary device.
