And actually it was announced before iPad.
It was announced in CES 2010

It uses Windows 7
but, yeah, it's more expensive then iPad

i've seen it and as cool as it is the price of the iPad kills it. apple finally created a product that could compete with others on price. how the hell did that happen? it's not like apple at all.

Ok.... This is enough.

Seriously, can Apple come up with any more than ONE original idea?
Honestly?

IT LOOKS LIKE A GIANT IPHONE. Wow.
Like.... I mean come ON.
[/rant]

So besides it basically being a giant iPhone, there is really nothing new on that is there?
*sigh*

I love my iPod touch, but....

The multi-touch tablet idea is awesome, really it is (I want one, and a multi-touch PC), but it just feels like a GIANT iPod. I am kind of sick of it.

At least HP made it DIFFERENT looking. I would be much more inclined to get that one.

The other deal killer is AT&T. Come on Apple, open it up to ALL carriers.

Personally, I'm going to hold out until next year when they unveil the..........iPad mini. It will just be the iPhone without the phone. No...wait a minute...they already have that...it's the iPod Touch.
